2019 Real Estate Market Different Than 2018


For the first half of 2018, many home sellers were getting multiple offers within a week of listing their homes and often selling above asking price. This year, buyers have had more time to house hunt while sellers have had to apply more caution when determining fair market value to entice buyers and avoid price reductions.

August’s vital statistics for all homes – detached single family (DSF) and attached single family (ASF) combined – include:
·        The average price was down 1.3 percent from the previous month but up 3.5 percent from a year ago;
·        Active listings were unchanged compared to the previous month but rose 13.6 percent from this time last year; and
·        The average days on market increased 15.4 percent from the prior month and 30.4 percent from a year ago.

Relatively stable prices, lower interest rates and increased inventory have given buyers more purchasing and negotiating power. The good news for sellers is that homes that are in top condition and priced well are still in high demand and often receive multiple offers.
