Inventory down Spotty demand Prices flat-ish Typical late fall market While not exactly sleepy, the Pleasanton real estate market was definitely not hyper-active in November.  Constrained inventory and lessened demand continued to keep a lid on sales and prices.  Prime properties, priced appropriately and in good locations continue to attract attention but even in multiple offer situations, buyers are less likely to bid aggressively.  November’s average sale was for 97% of the list price.  Pending sales were off 28% from October but were 29% higher than a year ago, a clear indication that demand is healthy. Only 44 homes were actively listed at the end of November, down 35 units from October’s 79 and five from November 2015’s 49.  Those 44 homes represented only a one month supply, com...
