Real Estate Market Update for 33803 (Lakeland, FL)
Welcome to May's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of April. The number of active listings was down 20% from one year earlier, and down 1% from the previous month. This smaller inventory means that buyers who waited to buy may have had a smaller selection to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was 220-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 16%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 120-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 28% year-over-year, and decreased 38% month-over-month. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms. Thanks for watching.
