Welcome to August's Market Update,. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of August. The number of active listings was up 5% from one year earlier, and did not change from the previous month. These latest figures mean that buyers had a greater 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 over 1.5-million dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 50%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 1.15-million dollars. The number of units sold decreased 33% year-over-year, and decreased 25% month-over-month. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms. Thanks for watching.
