Real Estate Market Update for Gulfport, MS
Welcome to January's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of December. The number of active listings was down 100% 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. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 100%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 80-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 100% year-over-year, and increased 100% month-over-month. These figures may indicate that buyers have been taking advantage of opportunities in this market. Thanks for watching.
