So far in October sales prices are continuing to punch through the roof compared to the last 2 years. High sales values, combined with reduced inventory, means potential home sellers should consider entering the market now and anticipate an excellent outcome.
So far this October, average sales prices have been around $390,000 compared to $365,000 last year and around $376,000 in 2018. Prices have strengthened since March and we anticipate that they will remain higher for the balance of the year. Based on these numbers home prices are 7% UP on this time last year.
Days on Market
Home buyers have been snapping up homes more quickly than at any other time over the last 3 years. Average days on market so far in October is only 50 days, compared to 65 days last year and 58 days in 2018.
Sales Volume (mid month)
Last year there were around 916 total sales registered in October and here we are at mid-month with 328 units reported sold, equal to around 47% of last year’s sales volume for October 2019.
I believe that we are on track to match last year’s volume or perhaps exceed it.
