Real Estate Market Update for Lakeland, FL
Welcome to July's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of June. The number of active listings was down 27% from one year earlier, and down 7% 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 200-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 14%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 160-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 2% year-over-year, and increased 9% month-over-month. Despite a slight annual decrease, this upward monthly sales trend indicates positive momentum. Thanks for watching.
