The number of active listings was up 17% from one year earlier, and down 4% 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 over 480-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 38%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 370-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 11% year-over-year, and decreased 7% month-over-month. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms. Thanks for watching.
