Real Estate Market Update for Akron, OH
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 27% from one year earlier, and down 3% from the previous month.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 7%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 70-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 1% year-over-year, and decreased 15% month-over-month. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms. Thanks for watching.
