November 2010 Market Action

16 12 2010

Wow!  Inventory numbers confirm that last year’s Fall market was better than this year’s. 


The Numbers

  • Inventory Nov. 2009 was 7.1 months and was 10.2 months for this report.
  • Pending sales up 7.4% over Nov. 2009 and down 12.6% from Nov. 2010.
  • Closed sales down 28.7% over November 2009 and down only 1% from November 2010.
  • Average sale price is down 0.5% from Nov. 2010 and down 1.8% from last month.
  • Median sale price is down 2.5% from last year and 0.2% from last month.
  • 12 houses pending over $1M pending and only 5 closed in the past 30 days. If these all close in 30 days we could see a significant price improvement in the average sales price and less of one in the median sale price.
  • Time on the market is up over last month by 6.5% but holding nicely at -7.4% for the year.  This indicates listings being better priced up front.


Hold on or put your hands in the air – your choice.  The ride apparently is not over yet even though Ben Bernake said we were done in September 2009 and Mark Zandi of Moody’s said in February 2010.
