Good-bye Summer!

The last few months have been outstanding for real estate but our August numbers reflect a slowing down that started occurring in July. This is actually a good thing! The asking prices were moving up faster than the market could allow. I realize there are many who would like to see their home values go back to what they were during the height of the market. That wasn’t a healthy market nor was it sustainable, we certainly do not want to see a repeat!

Available inventory increased again this month as did the number of vacant homes. This is due to an increase in build jobs. Total number of distressed inventory remains at about 12 percent of the market.

Pending Sales are seeing a pullback but has stayed over 1000 for several months now. My guess is that it will stay around the 1000 mark until at least November.

Closed Sales are down from last month as is the Sales Price. We are also seeing the gap between last years sales numbers and this years getting much closer. My guess is that we will see almost identical sales numbers come the November time frame as well.

Dog Days of Summer

Things have settled down a bit in Ada County! Keep in mind I am speaking relative to our crazy spring. All numbers indicate we are still going very strong but as is typical this time of year, the market flattens out a bit.

Available inventory had another increase by about 300 properties over last month and an increase of over 500 properties since May. We saw another slight pull back in the asking price. Over the past few months it looks as if the median asking price is settling in the $230K range.

The number of Pending Sales pulled back, down another 100 since last month. The median asking price was down as well by $4k.

Oddly the number of Closed Sales was up! Especially considering that we have seen historic highs the past few months and these are July numbers. However, the Median Sales Price is down by about $4k reflecting the pullback in pricing for Available and Pending listings. I think the market will continue to stay relatively strong but I do think as we head into fall, the prices will not be moving much in either direction.

Spring Market Ends Strong!

As the spring market comes to an end, it did so with strong numbers. The number of homes that sold in May are numbers that we have not seen since 2005/2006. As long as we can avoid the housing bubble of those years we should be alright!

Available inventory barely inched up by 76 homes. Not near enough to help meet buyer demand. The worrisome detail is that due to the lack of inventory many buyers are waiting for the “perfect” home and in the meantime interest rates are on the rise. For some, this could price them out of the market within the next few months.

As expected, the Pending Sales continued to do well. So did the median Pending Sales price! Up another $7500!

The number of Closed Sales are at historical highs. The percent of distressed homes fell by 10 percent month over month (22 percent in April and 12 percent in May). Only 40 homes that sold in May were Bank Owned and currently there are only 49 Bank Owned homes available for sale! We are getting to the point where I may not have to have the number of distressed homes in my statistics anymore! Now wouldn’t that be nice?!?

Spring Market Staying Strong!

The frantic pace that we saw in April has finally settled down a bit! Normally this time of year we see an increase in homes coming on the market. However, the inventory has only risen by 21 homes! Due to the lack of inventory, the median asking price is up by another $6K.

With the continued strong spring market, Pending Sales continue to rise as well. April was up (596) from March’s 465. Year over year the Median Asking Price is up by $45,100!

We have seen a slight pull back in the number of homes sold this month. With the decrease of distressed homes on the market we saw an increase in the sold price. The number of distressed homes this month on the market is down to 32 percent. This time last year, 60 percent of the homes sold were distressed.

With the decrease in active distressed listings and the overall lack of listings, it is pretty safe to say that Canyon County has finally entered the “normal” market!
