Northern California got a welcome but modest housing-supply boost as 2015 began, with the months’ supply of inventory (MSI) rising from December in every one of Pacific Union’s Bay Area regions and the Lake Tahoe/Truckee region.

The median home sales price dipped slightly month over month in most regions with several notable exceptions. In Silicon Valley, the median sales price climbed to nearly $3 million, and in the Mid-Peninsula, it hit a 12-month high of almost $1.7 million. Prices for single-family homes in the Lake Tahoe/Truckee region also rebounded in January, moving back up above $650,000.

The median sales price in our Contra Costa County region decreased by a smidgen from December to close January at $975,000, but it is still up by more than 10 percent on an annual basis. On average, homes sold for about 97 percent of original price, nearly identical to levels observed one year ago.

The MSI in the region expanded a bit to 1.6, and homes took an average of 40 days to sell, similar to last January’s pace.
