Time Spent on Market

The average Days On Market(DOM) shows how many days the average Property is on the Market before it sells. An upward trend in DOM tends to indicate a move towards more of a Buyer’s market, a downward trend a move towards more of a Seller’s market. The DOM for September was 36, up 16.1% from 31 days last month and down -28.0% from 50 days in September of last year. The September 2015 DOM was at its lowest level compared with September of 2014 and 2013.


Selling Price per Square Foot

The Selling Price per Square Foot is a great indicator for the direction of Property values. Since Median Sales Price and Average Sales price can be impacted by the ‘mix’ of high or low end Properties in the market, the selling price per square foot is a more normalized indicator on the direction of Property values. The September 2015 Selling Price per Square Foot of $1,017 was down -0.1% from $1,018 last month and down -5.0% from $1,071 in September of last year.


Selling Price vs Listing Price

The Selling Price vs Listing Price reveals the average amount that Sellers are agreeing to come down from their list price. The lower the ratio is below 100% the more of a Buyer’s market exists, a ratio at or above 100% indicates more of a Seller’s market. The September 2015 Selling Price vs List Price of 98.8% was up from 97.7% last month and down from 100.5% in September of last year.
