2009 at this time of year. The majority of the sales activity remained in the $300,000.00 to $350,000.00 price range.
The average selling price remained strong at $289,715.00 up 2% from July 2009 when the average was $283,531.00. Year to date the average selling price is $290,515.00 up 5% from 2009 when the average year to date number was $277,490.00. The higher average selling price indicates continued strength in the mid price range homes. In July it took 39 days on average to sell a home.
The average residential price is derived by taking the month’s dollar volume of homes sold and dividing that number by the unit sales number. The percentage of change should not be used unilaterally as prices vary from area to area. Consumers wishing an accurate estimate of value for their home should contact a REALTOR® member to do a comparative market analysis.
