Welcome to May's Market Update,. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of May. The number of active listings was up 10% from one year earlier, and did not change from the previous month. This continued upward trend reflected a healthy inventory for buyers to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 150-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 9%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 200-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 28% year-over-year, and decreased 14% month-over-month. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms. Thanks for watching.
