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 12 homes! Due to the lack of inventory, the median asking price is up by another $12K.

With the continued strong spring market, Pending Sales continue to rise as well. April was up (1388) from March’s 1239. And yes, another $10k increase in the Median Asking Price. Year over year the Median Asking Price is up by $29K!

Not surprisingly, the number of homes that Closed for April was up for both month over month, and year over year. What was a bit surprising was that the Median Sales Price remained relatively flat. The number of bank owned and short sales homes that closed was up and may be part of the reason that sold prices didn’t rise. If you look at the Median Days on Market, you can see how frantic the market was for April, it was down to 20 days. This means that homes were getting offers on them within 20 days of being on the market. Not sure the last time I have seen the Median DOM so low!

March Came in Like a Lion!

This spring market is showing no signs of slowing down! The inventory in Ada County only increased by 63 homes and the median asking price went up another $6850. The distressed market went down again to just 21 percent, down from last months 23 percent.

Pending sales saw another increase, going from 1005 in February to 1239 in March. Median asking price for pending sales went up as well: $199.9k from February’s $193K. Whenever we see an increase here, we know we will see an increase in closed sales prices for the next month.

More strong closed sales, as March was up year over year and month over month. Distressed sales are down to less than 19 percent of the sold market.  Closed sales prices were up another $4762 and days on market are down to 28. In fact, Ada County currently has less than four months of inventory.

Speaking of inventory, yes, I know I keep saying this but the Ada County area really is in need of some decent inventory. Houses are moving in 28 days or less right now and usually at full asking price.

Market Continues to Improve!

The real estate market continues to stay strong! We saw a slight increase in inventory but we are still at historic lows! Asking price is continuing its steady rise. Up almost $10K from last month. The search for decent inventor y continues to fuel multiple offers and decreased  days on market.

Pending sales increased over the thousand mark again (1005 units pending-Feb./ 878 units pending in Jan.) There was another increase in the median asking price which will translate into yet another increase in the closed median sales price.

We saw a jump in closed sales activity for February. We had 358 closed sales last month and had over 454 this month. The median sales price increased by $26,775 for the Meridian area! The distressed market continues to shrink for sold properties. In February 2012 , 47 percent of the sold market was distressed, now it is at 23 percent.

Are we heading into another bubble? I don’t think so! The lack of inventory is what is fueling the price increases right now. As more sellers recover from the hit they took after the crash, inventory will start to go up. At that point I think we will see a flattening of prices. In the meantime though, if you are a seller not under water and have considered selling, now is the time!

Winter Market is Here!

Well it looks like our winter market is here! The Available inventory has gone down again with the median Asking Price going up from last month (up by $4k). The number of Bank Owned homes on the market is down to only 38 (4 percent of the market). This time last year there were 75 Bank Owned homes available (8 percent of the market).

Pending Sales continue to be on the decrease, also consistent with the winter market. However, the median Asking Price had a slight pull back in Canyon County. We will see if this translates into a decrease in the median Closed Sales price for December.

The number of November Closed Sales was down as well as the median Sales Price. Year over year though, 2012 has proven to be dramatically better than 2011. We have seen the number of distressed properties go down, the Sales Price go up and even the number of homes sold go up as well.

All indications are that we will end 2012 very strong and that 2013 looks to be an even better year. Prices are expected to rise by about 4 to 7 percent, and interest rates are supposed to stay around the 3.75 percent mark for at least another 9 months. So, if you are thinking of buying or selling, 2013 may be the year to do so!

Winter Market Coming Soon!

While the October real estate market did not do too badly, we can see that the winter market is coming in. So what does this mean? For the most part we will continue to see a drop in inventory as sellers remove their homes from the market for the holiday months and into February. Normally when inventory shrinks, prices go up but that is not usually the case in the winter months. Prices generally flatten out, mainly because the bulk of the buyers are not looking actively for a home until March.

However, sellers are at an advantage when selling in the winter because the pickings are few and the buyers are definitely serious. Will the seller get at or above asking price? Probably not above (less buyers means no multiple bids) but more than likely closer to asking. Price it well and it will move quick!

 Buyers have an advantage as well because the homes that are on the market are usually with sellers that really want to sell. There are also less buyers meaning less competition when making offers. Will the buyer get a great bargain? Actually yes, and mainly because the prices are still relatively low as are the interest rates.

So, if you are thinking of buying or selling a home, winter time may be a great time to consider it! For more information regarding the Boise Real Estate market please go to my website: www.BoiseRealEstateChick.com or e-mail me: mary@BosieRealEstateChick.com

Where is the market heading?

September’s real estate numbers seem to indicate that the market has settled down quite a bit since our crazy spring. We are no longer seeing prices increasing at almost $2K -$3K a week. I feel the leveling off is healthy since the economy locally could not support the rapid increase. I realize for many, the current prices are still lower than when they bought. That is unfortunate but we can not afford to see another bubble so soon after the last one when we are still recovering from it!

An interesting item that I noticed when gathering my statistics for this past month was the List Price to Sales Price (median). List Price is what the seller lists the home for and the sales price is what it actually sells for. For Canyon County LP/SP was 100+ percent (LP-$104,250/ SP-$104,716). In Nampa it was 100+ percent (LP- $108,500/ SP- $108,900)and in Caldwell it was at 101 percent (LP- $100,961/SP-$102,000).

Even though prices are leveling off and will more than likely remain flat for a few months, my gut tells me that we are going to see another surge in activity and prices come spring.
