Welcome to January's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of December. The number of active listings was down 15% from one year earlier, and down 28% 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 under 500-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold did not change ... reflecting virtually no change in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 300-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 88% year-over-year, and increased 15% month-over-month. These figures may indicate that buyers have been taking advantage of opportunities in this market. Thanks for watching.
