March was a great month for the Orinda real estate market. The median sale price was $1,100,000, up from $900,000 in February; that's a 22% increase. In addition, the number of sold properties has increased year over year from 15 in March 2013 to 17 in March 2014, a 13% increase. And the month to month increase was roughly 22% with February sales being around 14. In addition the days on the market decreased which is another positive result of the shifting market. Orinda is among one of the many cities in the Bay Area that is really turning around. The changes are not swift, but they are steady.

The Orinda home sales report for August 2013 reflects the strong market for luxury homes along the Highway 24 corridor.  Active home listings (homes for sale but not in escrow) were reduced by half in the last 30 days, creating even higher demand for homes in Orinda and greatly reducing overall market activity. Of the 22 homes that closed escrow in August (down from 38 in July), 17 were on the market 30 days or less and only 4 were on the market longer than 60 days. September 1st Orinda Real Estate Market Snapshot: Homes active for sale: 20 (click to view > Orinda homes for sale) Price range of active listings:  $765,000 - $6,500,000 Short sale/Foreclosed homes for sale:  0/0 Homes currently in escrow:  32 (up from 25 on August 1st) To search for property listings of all types in Orinda...
