Welcome to May's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of April. The number of active listings was down 15% from one year earlier, and up 10% 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 310-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 270-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 2% year-over-year, and increased 4% month-over-month. These figures may indicate that buyers have been taking advantage of opportunities in this market.
