Inventory: December listings (457) decreased 10.9% from November and increased 3.9% from one year ago. At the current sales pace, all the active inventory on the market would sell in 3.6 months, down from 3.9 months in November and up from 2.3 in December 2021. The equilibrium point where buyers and sellers have roughly equal bargaining power is 4-5 months of supply.
Pricing: The area’s median sales price in December was $179,450, an increase of 4.0% from one year ago and a decrease of 9.8% from November. 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.
