El Cerrito Price/SQFT Trends

The median and average square foot price trends. The square foot price is one of the best ways to get a good rough estimate of your homes worth.

El Cerrito Price/SQFT Quartiles

If you try to use the average cost per foot to determine the approximate fair market value (FMV) of another property, you should be careful to understand a few key issues. First, the cost per foot tends to decrease as properties increase in size. In other words, the most expensive homes in El Cerrito, on a cost per foot basis, will tend to be the smallest properties. This is because economies of scale make larger properties less expensive on a cost per foot basis. You should adjust the cost per foot up or down if the subject property is smaller or larger than the average sized home in El Cerrito. The Home SQFT Price Quartiles chart helps give you a better understanding of sqft price and home size.

El Cerrito Real Estate Inventory - Monthly Active, Pending and Sold Activity

The real estate inventory chart shows the relations between the total number of properties that are listed each month, placed under contract each month (pending) and sold each month. This chart is good at determining the supply and demand of properties. When trying to find trends in home prices, I look at the number of the new home listings and the current price trends.
