Welcome to March's Market Update,. Let's take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of March. The number of active listings was down 16% from one year earlier, and down 18% 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 240-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 35%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 190-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 17% year-over-year, and increased 33% month-over-month. Despite a slight annual decrease, this upward monthly sales trend indicates positive momentum. Thanks for watching.
