Welcome to February's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of January. The number of active listings was up 58% from one year earlier, and down 1% from the previous month. Even so, buyers still enjoyed a greater selection of homes today than they did one year ago. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 220-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 over 160-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 11% year-over-year, and decreased 37% 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.
