In this latest report for December 2016, we are continuing to experience an active market although it did slow during the month of December. The Sales to Listing price ratio is 99.6% which is up slightly from November’s 98.6%. This indicates homes and condos on average are still very much in demand and selling at close to full price, primarily because of the lack of inventory. The median price of active listings is $189,900 while the median price of sold property is $143,337.
Listing Inventory is still WAY down! We have active, qualified buyers in many markets including the downtown condo market that are just waiting for that property. If you are thinking of selling your home, now is truly a GREAT time to put it on the market!
Don’t forget that Interest Rates are expected to rise this year.
There are currently 380 active listings (86 new listings in December) in the market area this report covers, with 284 properties selling. If you are looking for a home or condo, let us help you get notified right away of any new listings.
The average days on the market for December is 70 days, which is up from 55 days on the market in November.
