Welcome to March's Market Update,. Let's take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of March. The number of active listings was down 28% from one year earlier, and down 4% 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 just over 490-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 26%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 410-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 6% year-over-year, and increased 29% month-over-month. Despite a slight annual decrease, this upward monthly sales trend indicates positive momentum. 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.
