Market Report: Median Price Down M-o-M, Up Y-o-Y
Now that October is behind us, time to check in on what the real estate market did. Here’s a look at the three primary indicators:
- The median price at $650,000 is down $15,000 from September, but up $90,000 from last October
- We saw 1,072 new listings in October, down from 1,345 in September but it was more than we saw last October, 989
- The number of homes for sale at the end of October was 976, down from last October’s 1,137
Our experience touring clients every day and writing 2-10 offers a week is that there are still buyers out there that are determined by this year and that there are buyers who were planning to buy next year but are getting a jump start on things. On the seller side, even though this isn’t a conventional time to sell, sellers understand that there are still many buyers out there and bidding wars, for the most part, are still common.
