Welcome to September's Market Update,. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of September. The number of active listings was down 32% from one year earlier, and down 7% 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 850-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 2%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 1.15-million dollars. The number of units sold increased 20% year-over-year, and held steady month-over-month. These latest figures are encouraging news for both buyers and sellers, indicating a positive trend in the marketplace. Thanks for watching. We hope you use this information to make smart, informed decisions in your upcoming real-estate transactions. Feel free to contact us for more information or further assistance.
