The percentage of homes that went under contract within two weeks decreased from 31.9 percent nationwide in May to 30.5 percent in June as inventory growth continued to ease the pressure on buyers to act fast. Although the market now slowed two months in a row, it was still faster in June than it has been in years. A year ago only 23.2 percent of homes were under contract in less than two weeks—two year ago it was just 14.3 percent.
“Bay Area listings are now getting significantly fewer offers than just a couple of months ago, but homebuyers are still acting quickly when they see a home they like,” said Redfin’s San Francisco Area Manager Charmaine Frank. “Offer deadlines are less common, but buyers are still anxious to make their offers early to find out if they have a chance, or move on.”
