The number of sales are up - almost doubled. But there is a big impact on median and average prices. The reason being, many homes sold during the month are sold at low price. Â It's all the good news considering we hear it otherwise - based on number of sales. Days on market for these homes have gone up too - the other reason to have any concern about this market!
Overall, compared to last August, it's a great market - lot of improvement on number of sales despite lower median price, and average price. This is what one should look forward to every month, if the average price goes up!
Let's take a look at this chart that describes the trends for WILMINGTON, MA market over last year(courtesy: AltosResearch).
After a major drop in inventoryÂ before spring along with median price, not surprisingly enough, the median price went up, perhaps resulting into increase in inventory.Â Around summer time though, the increase in inverntory has to reflect on median price - and that's what you see here, eventually: Increase inventory and lower median price.Â I expect the trend to be reveresed next spring.
