Inventory: Total homes listed for sale in January increased 0.3% year-over-year from 304 to 305 listings. Months of supply (inventory to sales ratio) increased from 4.1 months in December to 6.8 months in January, reflecting a market where buyers generally have decreased bargaining power.

Pricing: The area’s median sales price in January was $221,000, a decrease of 9.8% from one year ago and a decrease of 14.7% from December. 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.
