Not Quite a Spring Market…Yet

February’s inventory was down from last month and is normally one of the lower months of the year. Other than a slight increase in the asking price, everything else within the Available market is relatively flat. This year’s market feels a little different than last year’s, to me anyway. I am not getting that same sense of urgency to sell or buy. I think the increase in prices has people looking a lot more carefully at what they may be getting for their money.

The number of Pending Sales was up pretty substantially from last month but the Median Asking Price remained flat. This indicates that we will see higher Closed Sales for March and probably a slight uptick in Closed Sales Price.

Closed Sales were down again but this was anticipated due to the lower number of Pending Sales in January. The Median Sold price was down by about $9K giving back all of January’s price increase. The Median Days on Market has started to come down. Homes that are priced correctly and are move-in ready are generally getting offers within the first week or two.

Of special note: Take a look at Eagle’s number of Short Sales and Reo’s that Sold in February. That is right! The number was zero! Making February a completely traditional sales month!
