The Real Estate Market is Crazy!

Spring has sprung early for our local real estate market! Due to low inventory, homes are going within days right now and many with multiple offers. I cannot say this enough, if you are thinking of selling or know someone who is, now is the time!

Inventory went up from last month by 14 homes, so basically we are flat month over month. Median asking price went up by $10k and we should expect to see that trend continue over the next few months.

The big story is the jump in Pending Sales! Up by 219 from last month, we are at historic highs with the current number at 1295. This time last year the number of Pending Sales was at 1030, and that was a high for March at that time!

Also at historic highs are the number of Closed Sales, up by 106 month over month and by 64 year over year. Less than 2 percent of the Closed Sales market were distressed. All but gone are the short sales and bank owned properties. The median Days On Market are down to 26. Just for comparison, last year was 40 DOM and in 2011 (bottom of the market) it was 70 DOM. Crazy market indeed!

Winter Market Ahead!

As November comes to a close, we now enter the official winter market! Inventory is continuing to come down, and it is actually becoming a chore to find enough variety for my buyers! The good news is that the inventory that is available is actually pretty nice and not too badly priced. As always, homes that are in good condition and priced well are moving very quickly, usually within the first few days of being on the market.

Following the usual seasonal pullback are the Pending Sales. They continue to decline and I expect that to continue into February 2015. The Pending Asking Price did go up though!

Closed Sales were down quite a bit this month and were down year over year as well. However, the Median Sales Price was up by $7K over last month, and year over year. We are also seeing the Median Days on Market going up (also to be expected) but as I stated earlier, homes that are priced well and in good shape are moving in a matter of days. Sellers should keep this in mind if they are planning to sell within the next year. Getting ahead of the competition will get you a better offer! So if you are thinking of selling, get your home ready to be on the market by February. And of course if you have any questions about pricing and getting your home ready, let me know, I am here to help!

Fall Is Upon Us!

The leaves aren’t the only things dropping this month! Inventory saw a little bit of a pull back. It is down by over 200 homes from last month. This is good news because it would not have been healthy for the market to head into the winter months with high inventory. Builders are still busy with 32 percent of the market being new homes. (Of the 1597 vacant homes more than 54 percent are the new homes.) As we head into the colder, wetter months we should see a substantial pullback on new build jobs though.

Pending Sales were down again by about 29 homes and the asking price remained flat. With the activity that I have seen personally in September, I am thinking the number of Pending Sales will actually go up for October. The market had about a three week surge of activity!

Closed Sales were down month over month but so was the Sales Price. That was down by $14K month over month but was up by $10K year over year. Item of note was distressed sales in Eagle, down to zero! That is correct! Closed Sales for Eagle had not a single distressed property in the mix. Now that is what I call a “traditional” market!

What Happened to Summer?

I don’t know about you but I don’t remember August even happening!!! This summer has passed by way too quickly! I originally thought that by years end we would break the 3000 mark for inventory. I may have to revise that and say by October we will be over 3000 homes available. The Median Asking Price decreased slightly by $1100 month over month but year over year it is up by $17K.

As is typical for this time of year, Pending Sales continues to decrease, down yet again from last month. Median Asking Price had a pullback as well, down $5100 month over month.

Closed Sales went down by 100 homes month over month and was down just as much for year over year. Median Sales Price went up by $5K gaining back last month’s loss. The Median Days on Market is now at 30, also happening sooner than I expected. This time last year Median Days on Market was at 20. I have found that homes are sitting a bit longer on the market right now, largely due to the increased inventory. The only homes moving quick are those that are priced below market! No surprise there!

Dog Days of Summer!

Well the dog days of summer are upon us! The real estate market is definitely showing the signs of leveling off for the season. However, inventory is continuing its rise and I am thinking we will see the available inventory go over the 3000 mark before years end. Something we have not seen for several years! The Median Asking Price has been doing a see-saw for the past several months, with July pulling back by $8k from June.

Pending Sales continues to decrease, now under 1000 and I am expecting to see this trend at least until December. Median Asking Price did rise slightly so we will see how that translates for August Closed Sales Prices.

Closed Sales were up but only by 30 homes month over month. We continue to see that year over year, 2013 was a much stronger year. The Median Sales Price saw a $4K decrease month over month and was only $7K more than last year. The Median Days on Market is slowly increasing and should be back in the 30’s by October. Overall, even though it feels like a slow market, relative to last year, this year is actually what is considered a normal or healthy market.

Inventory is on the Rise!

As is typical for this time of year, we are seeing an increase in the available inventory. We are also seeing the Median Asking Price on the rise, up by $18K over the last two months. At the same time the number of Vacant homes decreased indicating an increase in existing homes (traditional seller) versus new (builder).

Pending Sales continue their rise and I expect to see that well into June. The Median Asking Price for pending sales was up by $4K. The bulk (65 percent) of the Pending Sales are in the under $250K price range.

As was expected with the increase in Pending Sales, Closed Sales are increasing as well. The Days on Market are now down to 35 and we can expect to see that number continue to come down over the next few months as the Spring Market takes off. The Sales Price has remained pretty flat for the past several months. Even though the Median Asking Price in Available homes has increased, I don’t see the actual Closed Sales Prices going up too dramatically. Remember, just because sellers are asking more, does not mean they will get more. Buyers determine market price, not sellers. And with the increase in inventory, sellers would be wise to watch market pricing, not wishful thinking!

Not Quite a Spring Market…Yet

February’s inventory was down from last month and is normally one of the lower months of the year. Other than a slight increase in the asking price, everything else within the Available market is relatively flat. This year’s market feels a little different than last year’s, to me anyway. I am not getting that same sense of urgency to sell or buy. I think the increase in prices has people looking a lot more carefully at what they may be getting for their money.

The number of Pending Sales was up pretty substantially from last month but the Median Asking Price remained flat. This indicates that we will see higher Closed Sales for March and probably a slight uptick in Closed Sales Price.

Closed Sales were down again but this was anticipated due to the lower number of Pending Sales in January. The Median Sold price was down by about $9K giving back all of January’s price increase. The Median Days on Market has started to come down. Homes that are priced correctly and are move-in ready are generally getting offers within the first week or two.

Of special note: Take a look at Eagle’s number of Short Sales and Reo’s that Sold in February. That is right! The number was zero! Making February a completely traditional sales month!
