Inventory is Dropping Fast!

The current available inventory has dropped significantly since last month. It is now down by 247 homes and under the 2000 mark. For a point of reference, in 2010, the year before we hit bottom, the number of available homes was 3232. In 2012, the year after we hit bottom, the inventory was 2019. We are now below that at 1996 homes available!

The Pending sales are down by 71 homes from last month but still above last years total. Interestingly, the asking price has not really changed much being up by $2K year over year.

The Closed sales are down by 102 month over month but still ahead of year over year totals. The item to note in this months closed sales is the Days On Market (DOM). They are staying steady at 15 days. Typically this time of year we start seeing the mid 20’s to low 30’s time frame for days on market. We really have not gone over 15 DOM in the past six months. This really speaks to the fact that we just do not have enough inventory!

Many people are afraid to list their homes during the holiday/ winter months. However, this is usually the best time to list a home because competition is low and this year it is VERY low. So if you or someone you know are thinking of selling, PLEASE give me a call! I am here to help!
