Shifting into a Seller’s Market!

 If you had told anyone in April 2011, “just wait a year and we will be in a seller’s market”, they probably would have laughed at you. What a difference a year makes, but that is exactly what has happened!

 In April 2011, the sales price in Boise hit bottom at $135K. Now, here we are in 2012, and the May sales price was $179,094K (median). As a matter of fact the sales price jumped $20K just since last month!

Even though there has been a slight increase in inventory, it is not nearly enough to meet demand. This is reflected in the current median asking price which has jumped almost $10k since last month.

We are also seeing the continuing decline of distressed properties on the market. The percent of distressed homes for sale in May 2011 was 38 percent, now in May 2012 it is 28 percent. Combine this with the low inventory and high demand, we can safely say that we are now in a strong sellers market.
