Seller’s Market Continues!

Normally by May we see a fairly significant increase in available homes on the market. Currently we are just over the 2000 mark. This low inventory is continuing to fuel the seller’s market and I don’t see any big changes in that as we head into the summer market.

The number of Pending Sales is up yet again, month over month. The Asking Price for the pending sales is up by $13K month over month as well. I am expecting this trend of increased Pending Sales to continue through out the summer.

Closed Sales were up by another 126 pushing it over the 1000 mark. Distressed Sales now make up less than 2% of the market. This is true for the Available homes as well. The Closed Sales price was flat though from last month but year over year it is up by $12K. Median Days on Market are down to 10 days!

I don’t want to sound like a broken record but I can’t emphasize this enough: if you are thinking of selling, now is the time! There is basically no competition! Yes, you would also have to buy at the peak of the market. However, if you plan on staying in your home for at least the next 5-7 years, it won’t matter! Give me a call if you want to see what you could get for you home in this market! We can discuss your buying options as well!
