Oakland Sales Rate (Absortion Rate)

This is a measure, in weeks, of how long it would take to sell all of the existing properties currently for sale in Oakland based on the recent historic rate of sales. It is calculated by dividing the number of active listings by the run-rate of sales for properties in Oakland over the last months years. It does not account for seasonal variance, which can be significant. Normally the run rate will accelerate in the spring/summer and slow down in the fall/winter. This means that in a "normal year" the trends will slightly over state the index in the spring/summer and understate it in the fall/winter. Basically, this measure attempts to place the current inventory into the context of whether it is a Buyer's, Seller's or Balanced market. Buyer's market is over 16 weeks and a seller's market is under 16 weeks.

Oakland Real Estate Price trends

Key Insights
  • The monthly median selling price is on a 5 month price trend where property prices have increased 21%

The real estate price trend chart shows the median selling prices for homes over time. A moving average (MA) is a widely used indicator in technical analysis that helps smooth out price action by filtering out the "noise" from random short-term price fluctuations. Use this chart with the inventory chart to determine if prices for homes will be going up or down.

Home Price Quartiles

Looking at the market in quartiles, where each quartile is 25% of home, ordered by price

Quartile Median Price Avg. Sqft Avg. DOM Avg Year Built New Listings Total Listings
Top/First $1,400,000 2,291 14 1947 0 228 Most Expensive 25% of properties
Upper/Second $900,000 1,602 13 1947 0 228 Upper-middle 25% of properties
Lower/Third $685,000 1,297 14 1948 0 228 Lower-middle 25% of properties
Bottom/Fourth $490,000 1,012 17 1942 0 228 Least expensive 25% of properties

Oakland Price Per Square Foot 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.

Oakland Home SQFT Price 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 Oakland, 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 Oakland. The Home SQFT Price Quartiles chart helps give you a better understanding of sqft price and home size.

Quartile (# Listings) Sqft Range Avg. Sqft Price Median Price Avg. DOM Avg Year Built
Largest 25% sqft (228) 1,870 - 9,999 $543 $1,310,000 14 1948
Upper-middle 25% sqft (228) 1,346 - 1,866 $580 $845,000 13 1945
Lower-middle 25% sqft (228) 1,058 - 1,345 $636 $727,444 13 1944
Smallest 25% sqft (228) 1 - 1,058 $4,562 $537,500 14 1946

Oakland 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.
