Getting ready to buy or sell your home this spring break? If not now, then perhaps you're preparing for a home transaction sometime this year? As your Sunnyvale real estate experts with 27 years of experience buying and selling homes in the area, we want to tune you into what makes us so successful as realtors. Whether you decide to hire a realtor or go through the buying/selling process on your own, the first thing to really grasp your hands around are the market trends in your area. Before you even decide to buy or sell a home, you should know what the median sales price and the average list price are for homes in your area and whether those numbers have increased or decreased in the last few years. You should also do some competitive research about how many homes are currently on the market, what the average price per square foot is and what the average list/sale prices are for homes in neighboring areas. We're going to give you some detailed market research about Sunnyvale's real estate trends in 2015 as an example of how to analyze market data, and explain why it's an awesome time for home sellers in the area.


Overall, it looks like 2015 will be a great year for home sellers in the Sunnyvale area. Both the median sales price & the average list price have appreciated compared to prior weeks, with no price reductions.
