Despite these low rates and modest increases over time, there has been an increase in demand for homes in Castroville over recent years due to increased job growth and rising incomes. As a result of this demand-supply imbalance, housing prices have increased faster than wages over this period. According to Zillow's real estate analysis tool as of March 2016: "The number of homes for sale has decreased by 3% while inventory has increased by 5%. This suggests that buyers are having more difficulty finding houses they can afford." In addition: "The days on market statistic shows that listings have remained stagnant at 33 days which indicates that there isn't much turnover happening." These trends suggest that there is strong competition among buyers for available homes in Castroville – which likely contributes to high housing prices relative to incomes.
