November Update 2018

Hey my friends,

What can cool a hot housing market??

The housing market may be starting to benefit from the one thing that can loosen a long-running squeeze that has driven up prices and frustrated hungry buyers: MORE HOMES.

There are 500 more available homes for sale than one month ago and 2,800 more available homes than in the month of May.

Why is inventory increasing?

The elections? Maybe

But,partly because of an increase in new home construction (Demand is off the chain for new homes) as well as the willingness of more existing homeowners to put their houses on the market. Sellers want to benefit from big price gains on the assumption that housing prices may be peaking.

Now that we have a break from the political ads and mailers we can focus on our housing market once again. There are still open windows and tons of opportunity whether you’re looking to buy or sell.

As of today there are:

Single Family Homes 

6,875 Single family homes for sale

6,700 of those homes are “Regular Sellers”

99 are Short Sales,

76 are Bank Owned

2,953 Homes that have contingent or pending offers

10,761 Sold in the past 120 days.

The median home sale price for last month was $298,000 or $165 per square foot.
