Inventory: June listings (181) increased 21.5% from May and declined 40.3% from one year ago. Months of supply (inventory to sales ratio) also decreased from 3.6 to 1.4, reflecting a market where seller’s generally have elevated bargaining power.

Pricing: The area’s median sales price in June was $199,900, an increase of 11.0% from one year ago and an increase of 2.5% from May. The differing sample size (number of residential sales of comparative months) can contribute to statistical volatility, including pricing. ACRE recommends consulting with a local real estate professional to discuss pricing, as it will vary from neighborhood to neighborhood.

Homes sold in June averaged 88 days on the market (DOM), 42 days faster than June 2020.

Forecast: June sales were 11 units, or 10.0%, above the Alabama Center for Real Estate’s (ACRE) monthly forecast. ACRE projected 114 sales for the month, while actual sales were 125 units.
