March Came in Like a Lion!

This spring market is showing no signs of slowing down! The inventory in Ada County only increased by 63 homes and the median asking price went up another $6850. The distressed market went down again to just 21 percent, down from last months 23 percent.

Pending sales saw another increase, going from 1005 in February to 1239 in March. Median asking price for pending sales went up as well: $199.9k from February’s $193K. Whenever we see an increase here, we know we will see an increase in closed sales prices for the next month.

More strong closed sales, as March was up year over year and month over month. Distressed sales are down to less than 19 percent of the sold market.  Closed sales prices were up another $4762 and days on market are down to 28. In fact, Ada County currently has less than four months of inventory.

Speaking of inventory, yes, I know I keep saying this but the Ada County area really is in need of some decent inventory. Houses are moving in 28 days or less right now and usually at full asking price. PLEASE, if you know anyone thinking of selling a home, pass my name along to them or send me their info: or go to my website :

Market Continues to Improve!

The real estate market continues to stay strong! We saw a slight increase in inventory but we are still at historic lows! Asking price is continuing its steady rise. Up almost $10K in Caldwell from last month. The search for decent  inventory continues to fuel multiple offers and decreased  days on market.

Pending sales increased again (418 units pending-Feb./ 383 units pending in Jan.) There was another increase in the median asking price which will translate into yet another increase in the closed median sales price.

We saw a jump in closed sales activity for February. We had 153 closed sales last month and had over 184 this month. The distressed market continues to shrink for sold properties. In February 2012 , 71 percent of the sold market was distressed, now it is at 38 percent.

Are we heading into another bubble? I don’t think so! The lack of inventory is what is fueling the price increases right now. As more sellers recover from the hit they took after the crash, inventory will start to go up. At that point I think we will see a flattening of prices. In the meantime though, if you are a seller not under water and have considered selling, now is the time!
