Inventory: April listings (479) increased 4.8% from March and increased 55.5% from one year ago. At the current sales pace, all the active inventory on the market would sell in 3.2 months, up from 2.8 months in March and up from 2.1 months in April 2023. The equilibrium point where buyers and sellers have roughly equal bargaining power is 6 months of supply. 

Pricing: The area’s median sales price in April was $239,000, a decrease of 3.7% from one year ago and an increase of 11.2% from March. 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.
