Welcome to September'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 16% from one year earlier, and did not change from the previous month. These latest figures mean that buyers had a more limited 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 90-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 2%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 170-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 12% year-over-year, and decreased 14% month-over-month. Higher year-over-year figures indicate that more buyers have been finding what they're looking for. Thanks for watching. We hope you use this information to make smart, informed decisions in your upcoming real-estate transactions. Feel free to contact us for more information or further assistance.
