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!
