Welcome to October's Market Update,. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of October. The number of active listings was down 1% from one year earlier, and did not change from the previous month. These latest figures mean that buyers had a more limited selection of homes to choose from compared to the same month the previous year. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 140-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 37%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 120-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 14% year-over-year, and decreased 11% month-over-month. Higher year-over-year figures indicate that more buyers have been finding what they're looking for.
