The New Year is Here!

Happy New Year! Let us hope and pray that this year will be one of the best we have had in recent years. As the saying goes, “success is 99 percent attitude and 1 percent aptitude”. So let us get our positive attitudes going!

 Inventory is at record lows! We are down to 1730 homes in Ada County and if we take out the homes that are contingent short sales, the number of Available homes is around 1400. I have not seen this low of an inventory since I became a Realtor over seven years ago!

The number of Pending Sales is down and is to be expected this time of year. Interesting to note is that the median Asking Price is up by $5k since last month.

Closed Sales for December saw a pullback as well. I think this is due to the combination of low inventory and the typical holiday seasonal slowdown. With the lower Pending Sales number, we will see if January has lower Closed Sales as well.

 Overall, I think 2013 is going to be somewhat similar, sales wise, to 2012. Continuing another year of it being a good time to be a buyer and/or a seller. Prices will inch up around 5 to 6 percent due to low inventory (good for sellers) and the decrease in the number of distressed properties (35 percent of homes for sale in December 2011 were distressed, December 2012 was at 25 percent). Good for buyers, is the fact that interest rates are expected to stay at historic lows this year!
