November 2016 Status Report

At the beginning of each month we get a status report that shows how the local real estate market is doing compared to previous years. Here are some key highlights from the November Status Report.


 · Overall – Comparing 2016 sales with 2015 sales, it appears that 2016 is trending a little below last year with unit sales down 1% (15 units), total volume sold up 1% ($8,728,314) and average sale price up 2% ($8,024), but there are some bright spots in 2016. See the breakdown below:

 · Inventory – Resident property inventory is down 11%, Lots / Land inventory is down 21% and Commercial inventory is down 13%

· Residential Sales Condo Sales – Condo unit sales are at their highest level since 2005 and if the sales trend continues in December, then Condo sales will break the all-time sales record set in 2005. As of November 30, 164 units have been sold (178 units sold in 2005).
