Welcome to August's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of July. The number of active listings was down 26% 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. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 420-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 60%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 380-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 19% year-over-year, and increased 47% month-over-month. These figures may indicate that buyers have been taking advantage of opportunities in this market.
