Dataquick reported home sales for Ventura County for July 2010 today. Home sales came in at 749 down 10.5% YoY and down 15.8% MoM. The median sales price came in at $370,000 down 5.20% YoY and 3.6% MoM. Volume was in range from what I predicted at the beginning of the month. This amounts to the worst July since back for when I have records as far as sales volume. Right now August is looking weaker but with closings weighted towards the end of the month anything can happen. I highly doubt we'd see even July level volume in August though. If you follow the weekly inventory reports for Ventura County you can see the contingents have fallen but then leveled out as sellers respond with price cuts. It looks like a long slow slog from here on out.
