A poll was recently conducted on the neighborhood web site NextDoor, asking Aptos residents what they thought would happen to Aptos home prices in 2019. After a month, 42 responses to the survey were recorded. The results might surprise you: the NextDoor poll predicts higher real estate prices.
Of course, in no way should this poll be considered to be scientific. Online polls are notorious, in fact, for being unreliable. But given the fact that there appears to have been no
“poll-stuffing” with this particular poll, it may be a good barometer of sentiment among the Aptos community for home prices in 2019.
The Poll, open to all NextDoor users in zip code 95003, asked this question:
While California as a whole is expected to see lower home prices in 2019 compared to 2018, how do you think home prices in Aptos will change?
The #1 answer given, by 35% of respondents, was that Aptos real estate prices were expected to rise 2-5%. The second most popular response, given by 16% of survey participants, was that home prices would be lower by 2-5%.
The full survey responses are here:
- Flat – No Change in Home Prices: 14%
- Down 0-1%: 0%
- Down 2-5%: 16%
- Down 5-10%: 9%
- Down more than 10%: 4%
- Up 0-1%: 4%
- Up 2-5%: 35%
- Up 5-10%: 9%
- Up more than 10%: 4%
Overall it seems that the Aptos community feels confident that the real estate market will remain stable with gradual appreciation for the rest of 2019, with only 29% of respondents predicting that Aptos real estate and home prices will decrease even a small amount.
