Welcome to January'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 26% from one year earlier, and down 22% 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 over 120-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 26%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 130-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 42% year-over-year, and decreased 3% month-over-month. Higher year-over-year figures indicate that more buyers have been finding what they're looking for. Thanks for watching.
