Welcome to June'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 up 1% 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 250-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up more than 300%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 250-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 33% year-over-year, and decreased 20% month-over-month. Higher year-over-year figures indicate that more buyers have been finding what they're looking for.
