Portrait of a curious market in stats

June 7, 2011 at 4:23 pm Leave a comment

I run stats every week (and should probably post them here).    The current snapshot is thus:

Single-Family Homes:   1 foreclosure, 5 short sales, 84 total.


15 2-bedroom, median asking price $949,000.

31 3-bedroom, median asking price $1,595,000.


Condos & Townhomes:  5 foreclosures, 9 short sales,  160 total.

93 2-bedroom, median asking price $720,000.

37 3-bedroom, median asking price $859,000.

First, this is a low inventory.  Last summer, which was already low, peaked in early July around 120 single-family homes and 224 condos.    There is  no way that we’re going to get anywhere near there, the numbers have been bouncing around the current range for weeks.

Second, prices seem to be edging *up*, dire headlines notwithstanding.  I want to see the numbers for a couple of more months before I say “trend” instead of  “blip,” but for single-family homes in particular, the rolling average is now more than $100K higher than it was a few months ago.

Interesting times.
