Home Sales Return to Normal & Price Gains Continue!

   

Trendvision’s® most recent year-over-year, August 2019 vs. August 2018 Report shows (+1.3%) more homes sold last month. The number of homes sold was up (+60.7%) in the $1M price bracket, and down (-3.0%) in the $500-$999,999 price range, and essentially flat for homes selling for under $500,000.

   

Inventory has returned to normal as well — there were 2,628 homes available for sale in August — and we should be experiencing our typical seasonal increase in the number of homes available for sale over the coming months. There was virtually no change in inventory compared to the same time last year in all price brackets, and that’s great news for buyers as many of our buyers are struggling to find the perfect home at the present.

 

   

Average selling prices rose (+7.2%) for homes priced under $500K and the $500,000-$999,999 price band saw a slight  (+1.3%) increase in average selling prices. Homes priced $1M+ saw sales prices drop (-5.9%)  compared to the same month a year ago.
