Here comes Fall!

August seems to have brought the real estate market back to life! I am also currently seeing the same increased activity for September. Fall time is historically the second surge of the year for buying and selling.

With the decrease of distressed properties on the market, we are seeing more homes that are generally in move in condition. This is great for buyers because prices are still relatively low, allowing for some great deals. Cash buyers are still in the driver’s seat though, with many sellers preferring the cash deals even if they are the lower bid. This is because cash deals close quicker and do so without the need of an appraisal.

Pending Sales remain strong, but the Median Asking Price on them has gone down by around $6k. This will probably be reflected in September’s Sold Prices.

Number of Closed Sales saw a big increase from July as did the Median Sold Price. We are also seeing the continued decline of distressed properties being sold, down another 2 percent from last month. However, with the slight pull back in Median Asking Price for Pending Sales, I am thinking we will see the Median Sold Price stay either flat or decrease just a bit for September sales.
