Market Statistics - November 2016

(December 02, 2016 , posted in Market)


November sales for single family homes were again below the 10-year average as sellers took the time to adjust to the new reality of patient buyers. The average time on the market for single-family homes has risen by 12 days in the last month. Condos and townhouses continue to sell at a brisk pace and there is a slight increase in the days on the market since last month.

The holiday season should bring a slight slowdown to the number of properties being transacted as sellers either hold off on listing their properties or take their property off the market until the end of the season. Be prepared for a higher drop in the benchmark values for December as the sellers that have to sell consider lower offers than an average seller would.
