Seller’s Market Continues!

Normally by May we see a fairly significant increase in available homes on the market. Currently we are just over the 2000 mark. This low inventory is continuing to fuel the seller’s market and I don’t see any big changes in that as we head into the summer market.

The number of Pending Sales is up yet again, month over month. The Asking Price for the pending sales is up by $13K month over month as well. I am expecting this trend of increased Pending Sales to continue through out the summer.

Closed Sales were up by another 126 pushing it over the 1000 mark. Distressed Sales now make up less than 2% of the market. This is true for the Available homes as well. The Closed Sales price was flat though from last month but year over year it is up by $12K. Median Days on Market are down to 10 days!

I don’t want to sound like a broken record but I can’t emphasize this enough: if you are thinking of selling, now is the time! There is basically no competition! Yes, you would also have to buy at the peak of the market. However, if you plan on staying in your home for at least the next 5-7 years, it won’t matter! Give me a call if you want to see what you could get for you home in this market! We can discuss your buying options as well!

March Madness!

Last month I wrote that the Spring market had hit early. Well, last month looks tame relative to what is going on in the market right now! Not sure how long we can sustain this without it turning into a full scale bubble!?!

Even though inventory is up from last month, it is only up by 106 homes. This is not enough to meet the current buyer demand. Sellers are getting a little aggressive with their Asking Price; it is up another $14K.

The number of Pending Sales continues to rise. We are up by another 191 month over month, with last month being a record and this month is even higher. The Median Pending Price was up by $2K.

Closed Sales were up both month over month and year over year. However, the Sales Price was flat. Honestly, I see that as a good thing. I am very worried about the jump in Asking Price so I like to see that the Sold Price is stable. Days on Market are down to 15. So basically it is taking two weeks on market for a home to get an offer. What I am seeing in the April market, it is even shorter. Granted this is for certain price points but homes under $250K are moving anywhere from 2 hours to 2 days with multiple offers!

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!

2016 Begins!

As we start the New Year, it is starting to look like this is going to be a very interesting year! Inventory in January has not been this low since 2013, with 70 percent of the current available homes being vacant. With low inventory but high vacancies, we can see that the primary sellers on the market right now are builders and investors, both trying to take advantage of a market that is probably going to peak this year.

Once again we see a record number of homes Pending. Typically we are at anywhere from 700 to 800 but have been staying at the 1000 plus mark for several months now. To give some perspective, in 2011 (market bottom), there were only 584 homes Pending! Almost double that right now!

The only trend that was at the normal mark was how many homes closed for January 2016. While we had a big pull back month over month, we are above last years average. We are still hanging around the 30 day mark for Days on Market.

I am holding to my prediction that the Spring market is going to be crazy. Buyers are out there and waiting for decent inventory, and interest rates just went down again (3.8 percent on a 30 yr fixed). This is a really good time to be a seller!

Closing out 2015!

December 2015 closed out the real estate market just like it started last January, strong! Inventory continues to pull back and buyer demand is still going. 2012 was the last time we saw inventory this low and the asking price that year was $199K! Keep in mind 2012 was the follow-up year of the market bottom.

Pending sales while down under the 1000 mark, is still relatively high for the end of the year. The median asking price was up by $12K month over month.

The number of Closed Sales were up and this is very typical for December. What is not typical is the Days on Market. We are still under 30 days. Normally we are in the 31-40 day range. Sales price was down by $8K month over month but up by over $16K year over year.

My outlook for 2016 is very optimistic up until July-August time frame. With our current low inventory and strong buyer demand, I anticipate a very brisk spring market that should carry into the early summer. And that is where my crystal ball goes cloudy! It is a presidential election year and the past few have shown us that the markets can get very volatile during this time. So for now, if you are planning on buying or selling, do it soon!

Counting Our Blessings!

Thanksgiving is always a time to reflect and count our many blessings! I know I feel blessed to have so many great clients, past and present, and to have your referrals as well! My business this year was completely done by referral and I cannot begin to express my gratitude for your trust and your business! So a HUGE Thank You!

Moving further into the fall season we are not seeing much movement, up or down. The Active inventory was down by another -84 homes and the asking price was flat, month over month. As we approach the winter months we will watch to see how this plays out and its meaning for the spring market!

Our Pending Sales were down slightly but still well above where we normally are at this time of year. If you look at the right hand column you will see that historically we are usually under 900. This tells us that buyers are still active right now!

Closed Sales were down slightly (-28) but still well above year over year sales. The sales price was down by -$2K month over month but up by +$19K year over year. Days on market are still relatively low at 22.

Without making any bold predictions, I think I can safely say that if we don’t see a pull back in the next month or so, the spring market is going to be historic!

Looking Ahead to 2015!

December 2014 closed out the year very strong! Available inventory pulled back to under 2000 homes and the asking price remained flat. That may not seem like a big deal but the fact that we are in the winter months and there has been no pull back in pricing, indicates what should be a strong spring market.

2014 Closed Sales ended on a strong note as well! The number of closed sales was up month over month and year over year. The Sold Price remained flat. Once again, might not seem like an indicator but the fact is that the prices are not coming down. They are in a kind of “holding” pattern.

The next few months (January to May) should see a very strong sellers market. This is due to low inventory and buyer demand. Prices will start to trend up come the end of February and I am expecting to see Days On Market start to trend down.

What does this mean for buyers and sellers? Sellers need to get ahead of the market and have their homes ready to list by March. Inventory will peak around May and so will your competition! Buyers need to be decisive when making an offer. If you want it to be accepted quickly, make your first offer your best!
