Welcome to October's Market Update. Lets take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of September. The number of active listings was up 90% from one year earlier, and up 4% from the previous month. This continued upward trend reflected a healthy inventory for buyers to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just over 270-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 34%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 240-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 14% year-over-year, and decreased 23% month-over-month. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms. Thanks for watching.
