Great Start to the New Year!

2015 is off to a great start! Inventory continues to stay under 2000 and the median asking price continues for the fourth month in a row to stay flat. I do expect to start seeing both of these on the rise in the next month or so.

We should expect to see an increase in buyers as many of those who had to short sale their homes 4 or more years ago re-enter the market. Their loans will not be as optimal, interest rate wise. This means that although they can now purchase they will pay a slightly higher interest rate because their credit score took a little bit of a hit.

Pending Sales was up by 133 since last month. That is a nice increase although the median asking price for pending sales was down by $8K month over month. This should also translate into increased number of closed sales for February.

The number of closed sales was down month over month. This is primarily because January closed sales were up against December’s year end rush to close numbers. However, when we look at the numbers year over year they are almost identical, and the closed sales price is up both month over month and year over year. Overall, I would say we are off to a very good start to what I think is going to be an exceptional year in real estate!
