Spring Market Staying Strong!

The frantic pace that we saw in April has finally settled down a bit! Normally this time of year we see an increase in homes coming on the market. However, the inventory has only risen by 12 homes! Due to the lack of inventory, the median asking price is up by another $12K.

With the continued strong spring market, Pending Sales continue to rise as well. April was up (1388) from March’s 1239. And yes, another $10k increase in the Median Asking Price. Year over year the Median Asking Price is up by $29K!

Not surprisingly, the number of homes that Closed for April was up for both month over month, and year over year. What was a bit surprising was that the Median Sales Price remained relatively flat. The number of bank owned and short sales homes that closed was up and may be part of the reason that sold prices didn’t rise. If you look at the Median Days on Market, you can see how frantic the market was for April, it was down to 20 days. This means that homes were getting offers on them within 20 days of being on the market. Not sure the last time I have seen the Median DOM so low!

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own siote soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options
    out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips?

    • It really depends on what you are trying to achieve! Just starting out I would recommend doing the free version of wordpress. Once you know how you want your site to look and know who you want to reach with your message, then determine if you need to go to a paid for site. Best of luck to you!
