Inventory: June listings (167) increased 12.1% from May and declined 43.6% from one year ago. Months of supply (inventory to sales ratio) also decreased from 2.1 to 1.1, reflecting a market where seller’s generally have elevated bargaining power.

Pricing: The area’s median sales price in June was $184,750, an increase of 11.3% from one year ago and a decrease of 1.8% 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 51 days on the market (DOM), 25 days faster than June 2020.

Forecast: June sales were 15 units, or 10.5%, above the Alabama Center for Real Estate’s (ACRE) monthly forecast. ACRE projected 141 residential sales for the month, and actual sales were 156 units sold. ACRE forecast a total of 764 sales in the area year-to-date, while there were 777 actual sales through June, a difference of 1.7%.
