Sereno Group Posts $387 Million In 2013 First Quarter Home Sales
Posted by Kathleen Kowal — May 8, 2013
Sereno Group posted $387,000,000 in home sales volume during the first quarter of 2013, a 55% year over year increase from 2012. Even with the increased volume, the company’s average sale price remained at approximately $1,000,000, further signs of the Bay Area market’s continued recovery.
“Sales activity has been incredible during the first part of this year,” said Chris Trapani, CEO of Sereno Group, “We are seeing continued lack of inventory throughout the entire Bay Area, with most marketplaces having less than one month of available inventory. We are seeing multiple offers in all price ranges, including those listed above $3,000,000. “
Sereno Group’s nearly 400 first quarter sales included 62 properties selling above $1,000,000, with a high sale of $4,175,000 for a home in Palo Alto. Trapani projects the company will close an estimated $2.3 billion by end of year 2013, a significant increase from $1 billion in 2011 and the $1.8 billion in closed production in 2012.
