Welcome to December'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 32% from one year earlier, and down 26% from the previous month. This smaller inventory means that buyers who waited to buy may have had a smaller selection to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 640-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold did not change ... reflecting virtually no change in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was 460-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 6% year-over-year, and increased 18% month-over-month. Despite a slight annual decrease, this upward monthly sales trend indicates positive momentum. 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.
