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 down 14% from one year earlier, and down 13% 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 just over 220-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 11%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate.
