Heading into Fall…

Inventory continues to increase, up by 159 homes since last month. This is a good thing since we need more inventory to help stabilize the prices. Home values going up to quickly is not a good thing for several reasons: first it is not sustainable especially if local incomes do not rise with it. Secondly, as a home owner these increases in home values will be reflected in your June 2019 taxes. Some will have a bit of sticker shock when the tax assessment arrives.

Something new we did see in August was that for the first time in 18 months we have less homes sold year over year. It is only down by 37 from last year but it is the first time we have seen a lower year over year total. Could just be an anomaly but worth watching to see if the same holds true for September.

Prices for sold homes is way up from this time last year though. The median sales price in August 2017 was $277,975. This year it is $330,000. That is a $52,000 increase! Anyone who bought this time last year are looking at some nice equity in their homes already!

Dog days…

The current real estate market here in the Treasure Valley is pretty flat. We only saw an increase in inventory of 54 homes. Pending and Sold’s were both down as well. I have had people ask me if this is an indicator of a market bubble about to burst. It is not! I think everyone has gotten use to the crazy last few months and think that is our new normal. It is not!

The feeding frenzy we saw in the spring was the normal amount of buyers but with a much lower inventory available to them. This created a market where homes went in a matter of hours, with multiple offers, and above asking prices. That has slowed down now as it always does in the summer months.

I think we will see a slight uptick of activity in the October time frame and then again in December. This too is normal. I am not expecting any major increases in inventory and I do see prices continuing to rise but not as quickly as they had been over the past few months. From now until the end of December we should see a relatively normal market.
