Inventory & MSI

The Total Inventory of Properties available for sale as of March was 625, up 5.8% from 591 last month and down -20.8% from 789 in March of last year. March 2014 Inventory was at the lowest level compared to March of 2013 and 2012.

A comparatively lower MSI is more beneficial for sellers while a higher MSI is better for buyers. The March 2014 MSI of 7.8 months was at its lowest level compared with March of 2013 and 2012.

Market Time

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 March was 165, up 4.4% from 158 days last month and down -8.8% from 181 days in March of last year. The March 2014 DOM was at a mid range compared with March of 2013 and 2012.

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 March 2014 Selling Price per Square Foot of $249 was equal to $249 last month and up 7.8% from $231 in March 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 March 2014 Selling Price vs List Price of 96.9% was down from 97.6% last month and up from 94.3% in March of last year.

Inventory / New Listings / Sales

‘This last view of the market combines monthly inventory of Properties for sale along with New Listings and Sales. The graph shows the basic annual seasonality of the market as well as the relationship between these items. The number of New Listings in March 2014 was 232, up 56.8% from 148 last month and up 22.8% from 189 in March of last year.
