Conversely, when you look at the new listings they have been higher all year with this past month being the first drop. These are important charts to compare as it is showing we have had more inventory come on ytd (676) vs. last year (616), approximately a 10% increase but we have also had less sales this year (269) vs. last year (275) a 2.2% decrease. What does this tell us? It shows us that there is quite a bit more inventory than last year, with a small downtick in properties sold. The biggest take away with more inventory is that the pricing has to be right in this market.
The next two charts will break the market down by price point.
The above chart shows the percentage of the inventory in any given price point. It is important to compare where the inventory is vs what has sold.
So, when comparing these charts you get a strong feel for the market. The under $2M market is 41% of the inventory but accounts for 68% of the ytd sold. Yet, when you look at the over $3M market, it only accounts for 17% of the sold properties, while it accounts for 42% of the inventory.
