Prices continue to move upward possibly created by low inventory, but let’s look at the other metrics.
Solds listings dropped dramatically to 18 from last year’s 29 closings for a 37.9% decrease in sales volume which seems a bit at odds with prices going up. Pending listings were up 7.9% to 41 from last year’s 38 so it looks as though the pipeline is filling for another good year.
Active listings stand at 245 vs. last year’s 306 for a 19.9% tumble while new listings were a paltry 36 in total to last year’s 72 for a 50% slump. Now the story is revealing itself more clearly.
Although sales volume firmly diminished in January vs. last January inventory is at a major low as fewer sellers come to market. One could even say sales volume dropped because there is less to choose from as a result, a problem throughout the country right now. However, pending sales are up so let’s see how this all shakes out moving forward One thing is for sure…….prices on both the East and West side do not seem to be abating yet inventory is stagnate to dwindling.
