Prices Up, Days on Market Decreases and Inventory Continues to Shrink
17 Jun 2013

We’re halfway through the year and it seems our collective attention has shifted from monitoring price and sales gains to eagerly anticipating more new listing activity on the part of sellers. This shift is the result of an imbalance between strong demand for homes and constrained supply. In some markets, purchase agreements are being written up directly after a showing. Your experience and local market conditions may differ, but the market as a whole has summertime heat.

  • New Listings were up 3.0 percent to 12,275
  • Pending Sales increased 20.7 percent to 9,939
  • Inventory shrank 27.1 percent to 36,518 units
  • Median Sales Price was up 35.7 percent to $148,000
  • Days on Market decreased 17.6 percent to 75 days
  • Months Supply of Inventory was down 28.6 percent to 5.0 months, indicating that demand increased relative to supply

Interest rate risk is back in the headlines after Fed chief Ben Bernanke’s latest testimony on Capitol Hill. The Federal Reserve Bank is considering decreasing its $85 billion a month bond asset purchases, which have been holding interest rates at or near historic lows. This is mostly the result of an improving jobs market, which is a good thing for real estate.

Enjoy the Summer of 2013 and be sure to let us know how we can help you to sell your home in the “Good News” Real Estate Market!
