Welcome to April's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of March. The number of active listings was down 10% from one year earlier, and up 2% from the previous month. This recent increase reflected a larger selection of homes for buyers to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just over 170-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 8%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 160-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 46% year-over-year, and decreased 9% 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.
