Real Estate Market Update for Stafford, VA
Welcome to December's Market Update,. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of December. The number of active listings was down 7% from one year earlier, and down 10% 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. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 31%. 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 decreased 11% year-over-year, and increased 12% month-over-month. Despite a slight annual decrease, this upward monthly sales trend indicates positive momentum. Thanks for watching.
