Well priced Silver Lake homes are selling relatively quickly with many of the more desirable properties selling in multiple offers.  That said, there are still some sellers who are not being realistic about their asking price.  Such homes linger on the market until reality sets in or the property listing is withdrawn or expires.

Silver Lake Market Statistics Report for the month ending June 30, 2011 According to the information provided in the MLS, of the total number of single family homes sold in Silver Lake so far this year, 7 where short sales and 8 where bank owned. Approximately 22% of the total sales for the first half of this year were distress sales. Six of the currently active Silver Lake listings are distress sales, just shy of 9%. Silver Lake prices vary by location, school district, property size and condition.  The following chart shows that the majority of sale of Silver Lake single family homes this year (46%) have sold between $500,000 and $800,000. If you have been hoping to find a house in Silver Lake for less than $400,000 you’ll see that only 11 homes (about 16%) have sold in that price range since the beginning of 2011.  The market for homes in this lower price range is not only very competitive, but the majority of the properties are major fixers, very small, and/or in less desirable areas.  Investors have come back into the market and are snapping many of these up for all cash. If you are looking to buy such a home to live in, you do have a time advantage in some cases. Fannie Mae’s “First Look Program” for Fannie Mae-owned foreclosed homes only considers offers from public entities and those seeking to purchase a home as their primary residence during the first 15 days that a property is listed.
