Welcome to November's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of October. The number of active listings was down 17% from one year earlier, and up 1% 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 400-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 56%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 200-thousand dollars. The number of units sold was consistent year-over-year, and increased 33% month-over-month. These latest figures could indicate that more buyers have been finding what they're looking for.
