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 8% from one year earlier, and up 10% from the previous month. This recent increase reflected a larger selection of homes for buyers to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was 260-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 34%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 190-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 1% year-over-year, and decreased 6% month-over-month. Higher year-over-year figures indicate that more buyers have been finding what they're looking for.
