So just how did the Walnut Creek Real Estate Market perform in 2011? Well the answers are below. Sales were robust compared to 2010 for both single family homes as well as attached dwellings. Good news considering that there was limited home buyer tax credits available. In addition, the time that it took to get a home into escrow increased slightly but it was still less than sixty days on average which is very good. The downside came in the median home prices. There was downward pressure on both market segments with condominiums and townhouses leading the way. Let’s look forward to an improving economy and low interest rates to move us up in 2012.
