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 February was 40, up 11.1% from 36 days last month and down -34.4% from 61 days in February of last year. The February 2016 DOM was at its lowest level compared with February of 2015 and 2014.


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 February 2016 Selling Price per Square Foot of $1,182 was up 12.7% from $1,049 last month and up 22.2% from $967 in February 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 February 2016 Selling Price vs List Price of 100.7% was up from 97.9% last month and up from 98.2% in February of last year.
