Single Family Homes:
September’s median sales price continued its predictable seasonal backing off from its Spring peak in May of $1,475,000, off by 8.5% to $1,350,000. Prices are still up 10.9% above September, 2016.
Inventory is up from August’s 1.9 months to 2.1 months. The number of new listings on the market year-to-date is down 7% from 2016 while the number of sales is up 2.6%.
The incredibly tight supply coupled with strong demand kept the level of overbids high as well, up to 115.6%, higher than last September’s 108%.
86.3% of single family homes sold above the list price, up from 77.5% last September.
Median sold prices are up 7.8%, to $1,100,000, compared to September 2016’s 1,020,000.
