Across the Bay Area, markets have continued to slow
As illustrated in this report, dramatic changes in
demand, inventory, overbidding, price reductions,
and year-over-year appreciation rates have usually
occurred. Bring and selling continues: Over 5200
home sales were reported to MLS from Napa County
to Monterey in July 2022 – many of them selling
quickly for over asking price – but that number is
down 38% from last year. Median home price

macroeconomic factors at play.
to some agents, buyer interest has begun to
rekindle with the decline in competition, increase
in inventory, and economic changes mentioned
above, but if this is part of a broader recovery
in demand, it has not yet shown up in the

what’s occurring on the ground right now. Monthly
data can be volatile, fluctuating according to a
