Good question Ann! As you well know different areas of town may be different - worse or better than the average for the entire city but I can give you some generalizations. In the past 6 months, 683 homes have sold. I used "Abilene proper" for this search - not outside. The average DOM is 82, average sold price $122,227 with an average list price of $126,099 (96.93% sold to list value). Using the same geographic search parameters, I find 708 Active or Under Contract with an average of 119 days on market at an average list price of $136,573. This is good info as of September 29, 2010.
If I can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me.
