You can view the full report by clicking the picture to the right and below is a brief explanation of the main data.
- Median sales price jumped up to $235,000. A 6.8% jump from January 2014 and up 23.6% from Feb. 2013. This is the highest amount since the bubble.
- The biggest jump came from regular sales at 8.1%, REO/bank owned fell 2.1%, and short sales went up 1.7%. Remember, normal market appreciation is 3-5% per year.
- Units sold was up 7.1% from last month which is typical because we’re leaving the slower cold month market.
- There were 548 new listings. 79% were regular sales, REO/bank owned 6%, short sales 13%, 1% were other. Good news for all as sellers are able to sell without short sale”ing” and buyers can become homeowners within 30-40 days of an accepted offer.
- Average days on market for regular sales was 95 days, REO/bank owned at 89 days, and short sales at 233 days. Yes, short sales still take forever.
- Month’s supply of inventory dropped to 4.5% which puts back into more of a seller’s market. Anything above $750,000 is still a buyer’s market.
Overall, I’m kind of surprised by the median sale price jump. Though it’s indicative of the market moving into buying season.
