Are We Back To Normal?

As you can see, the number of Available listings continues to trend downward and the Asking Price remains flat. So is this a good or bad thing? For sellers, this is a good thing because the competition is going down and while prices are flat, they are not going backwards. For buyers, this means there are less homes to choose from but at the same time prices are remaining reasonable (and interest rates are still very low!).

My personal opinion on the current market is that we are at NORMAL and that is a good thing. We needed to see inventory come down because we do not want it to sit over the winter and then start the spring market with an already overloaded inventory. That would have driven prices downward and since we are just hitting a normal market, that would not be good!

Pending Sales were relatively flat month over month but the Asking Price is up by $7K.

Closed Sales were flat as well but the Sales Price was up by $4K from last month. We are currently hovering around last years Sales Price numbers. Once again, this is a good thing. It is nice to see no wild swings in pricing since last year!
