As the Year 2018 comes to an end, I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

This was a very interesting year for the Treasure Valley area. We saw rapid growth as Idaho became the number one State to move to. With that designation came a crazy housing market in the spring. Our inventory could not keep up with the demand and this created bidding wars that pushed sales prices way up.

Will this happen come spring of 2019? There is a very real chance we will see another frenzied spring housing market. Inventory is going backwards again and we are hearing (via social media and the news) that the inflow into Idaho is not done.

Season for Thanksgiving…

After 6 months of slightly increased inventory, October saw a slight decrease in inventory and we are still well below October 2017 inventory of 1913 available homes. I am not expecting inventory to go up as we head into the winter months. With that in mind, we are on track for another crazy spring market.

Pending Sales continue to decrease for month over month and year over year. The pending asking price is up month over month though.

October saw an increase month over month for number of homes sold as well as year over year. The median asking price is up by $4K month over month and up by $52K year over year. Low inventory is still driving the increase in median sales price. As of now, August was the peak in median sales price at $330K.

As we head into the holiday and winter market, I expect to see inventory to continue dropping. The thought is to wait until spring to sell a home but with inventory like it is in the under $350K market, right now is probably the best time to sell. If you or someone you know is thinking of selling, PLEASE contact me!

Full Fall Season

Inventory is up for the 6th month in a row. Our current inventory is only off by 138 from last year at this time. The median asking price is up month over month but the price has been going back and forth since it peaked in April at $396K, where it is now.

We continue to see the number of Pending Sales down for both year over year and month over month. The Pending Sales price has been flat for 3 straight months. The number of Pending Sales peaked in May at 1941.

The number of homes sold in September was down both year over year and month over month. The median sold price was at $316K but it is up by $43K from same time last year.

The next few months will indicate if there is a new trend going on. It appears there is a slight market pullback and this is not just a local trend. Reports are that this is happening throughout the country. Could be rising interest rates, or seasonal, or that we are comparing the current market to this past spring. That was an above average selling market, which is why the year over year numbers are important. We will see…

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!

May Flowers…

We are finally seeing a decent increase (relatively speaking) in available inventory, up by 104 month over month. And with that increase we see a $4K decrease in the median asking price month over month.

The number of Pending Sales was up by only 7 but up by $11K month over month.
The substantial number is the amount of Closed Sales for May. This was up by 284 homes month over month. This is what we should be seeing for May! The median Closed price was up by $9K month over month and by $44K year over year.

Seeing how the prices just keep going up, you can see that if you bought a home in May of 2017 you would have paid $44K less than if you are purchasing this May. I don’t expect to see that trend change. So if you are wanting to buy now, do it! And of course you know who to contact for that! 😉

April Showers…

As we head into the full Spring Market we finally see an increase in Available Inventory. Okay so it is only up by 53 homes but at least we did not continue to slide backwards. Median asking price is up by $15K to $396K., slowly inching our way to the $400K mark.
Interesting to note is that in the past year the median asking price has normally gone up by $3K-$5K each month. Then in January 2018 the price jumped by over $20K and then up by another $10K in February, holding steady in March and now jumping again another $15K.

That being said, while we saw the Median Sales price for Sold homes go over the $300K for last month, it actually came down by $10K. I do think that we will see some fluctuation in and around the $300K range until that price is the new bottom.
Inventory is still too low so if you are thinking of selling or know someone who is, please contact me for a free Comparable Market Analysis (CMA).

March Madness

Here we are again! Another month of Available Inventory sliding backwards. This is by far the lowest inventory level I have seen in my 13 years as a realtor. Ask any agent or buyer looking for a home and they will tell you how frustrating it is. The new normal is waiting in line outside a home to get a turn to go in and view it. Desired homes go so quickly that most buyers do not even get to view a home before it goes Pending.

Pending Sales continue to climb! Month over Month we are up another 232 homes. This speaks to the decline in available inventory.

One of the things I have been watching is the median Closed Sales Price. It has been trending upward and I expected it to go over the $300K mark in a month or so. It has happened! The median Closed Sales Price is now at $307,990. This is up by $14K from last month and if we look at year over year, it is up by $56K.  Median days on Market are now at 11. We have not even hit the peak Spring market yet. May’s numbers are going to be very interesting for sure!

Bottom line: If you are wanting to sell, do it now! If you price your home correctly it will go quickly. If you are a buyer, buy now because prices are not going down so this might be your last opportunity to buy at the current price. And of course, contact me for all your buying and selling needs!
