The chart on the right above breaks down the number of homes sold by living area range for homes which are between 1000 and 4000 square feet in size.
The chart below provides some information on trends in closing prices. It shows a 12-month quarterly “rolling average” of closing prices for homes sold over the past 5 years in total and broken down by number of bedrooms (for homes having 2-6 bedrooms). It suggests that after a decline in mid-2013, prices have held steady for homes with 2 and 3 bedrooms but have recovered and even improved for homes with a greater number of bedrooms.
The chart above also shows a 12-month quarterly rolling average for “Active Days on Market” regardless of number of bedrooms. This suggests that the average time to sell a home has been fairly steady in a range of 80 to 110 days, although the ADOM has been on the lower end of that range for the last year or so.
We’ll be monitoring the market over the coming months to see if there are other trends or data of interest which we can share with you in future blogs.
