2014 Starts in a Mixed Way…

The 2014 real estate market has begun! Inventory inched back up and so did the Median Asking Price. We continue to see the distressed inventory dry up but we are also seeing an increase in new build jobs. This will for sure keep the Median Asking Price on the rise.

The number of Pending Sales went up but there was a slight pullback in Median Asking Price. Even with the winter weather hanging around we should continue to see the Pending Sales go up as many buyers try to take advantage of low interest rates.

Closed Sales saw a big pull back from last month but is still up from a year ago. The Median Sold Price was up both month over month and year over year. The Median Days on Market went up but I do expect to see that  start coming back down as we approach March. As home prices rise I also expect to see short sales disappear from the market as sellers finally come out from underwater.

2013 Year End Numbers are in…

2013 proved to be a very strong market for real estate. Sellers finally saw some daylight as home prices moved upward. Buyers had more options with increased inventory and continued low-interest rates. Will 2014 continue the seller’s market? Will buyers be able to stay in the game or will many have to wait it out?

Our current inventory has had some pull back, going down by 15 percent. This is actually a pretty good indicator of a “normal” market as homeowners of existing homes wait until after the holiday season to list their homes. However, my concern is the number of new build jobs out there. Of all the current available inventory (2002 homes), 739 of them are new build jobs. That is 37%percent of the market! If that trend continues it  could make it difficult for existing home sellers (in the under $400K price range) to compete.

Because interest rates seem to be staying in the 3.75 to 4.75 percent range buyers are still getting good deals on their loans. However, prices are rising and I am expecting a very active spring. Sellers are wanting top dollar and are not making too many (if any) concessions on offers they receive. My advice, if you are thinking of buying do so now and make your first offer your best one.

Thinking of Selling?

If you are considering selling your home, don’t wait until the end of April or May! The time to get your home on the market is in March. This gives you a jump-start on the spring sellers who wait. With less competition your home will sell for more and will sell quicker!

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.

Summer Market

The Canyon County summer market is behaving as expected. Sales are slowing down a bit,  allowing for inventory to increase. June closed out the spring market with very strong numbers and July is not looking too shabby!

The Available inventory finally starting to inch back up. The Median Asking Price stayed the say from May. As inventory increases we will see the median asking price start to level off or decrease.

The Pending Sales saw a decrease of 12 and the Median Asking price only rose by $4K. As the summer market continues we should see these number continue to shrink a bit.

The number of Closed Sales saw a slight decrease from May. The percent of distressed homes also stayed the same at about 24 percent of the market. The big news is the Median Sales Price! It was up by $7500K from last month and over $9K since April! That is a huge! Year over year it is up by over $28K! Are you thinking of selling? Come on in, the water is definitely warm!

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!
