Inventory Continues to Rise!

May continued the inventory rise that is typical for spring. There was a slight pull back on the Median Asking Price (down by $8k month over month). As we head into summer, we should see the inventory numbers start to level off.

Pending Sales were up slightly month over month (up by 45). The Median Asking Price was up only by $4K. While unremarkable, good news is that the number of Pending Sales is staying over 1K. With increasing inventory, increased pending sales is a must to keep the market from tipping in the wrong direction.

The number of Closed Sales while up month over month, are down if we look at year over year numbers. We also see that last months flat Median Asking Price for Pending Sales is now reflected in this months flat Closed Sales Price. The number of Days on Market is down to 17 but I anticipate that number to start inching back up as this year continues.

Overall, this has been a fairly quiet spring market as far as sales go. On the other hand asking prices and inventory continue to rise and has been driven primarily by two things: very low number of distressed sales and new build jobs. The distressed numbers should continue to bottom out and the pace of the new build jobs should begin to taper off.
