The typical cycle of sales in our area is highest in the summer months and drops off as we approach winter, the holidays and the beginning of the new year. That cycle is reflected in the October stats, Sales are down 5.4% from September but are 13% higher than in October of 2016. The total active listings, indicating how many homes are available for sale, is also down nearly 10% over last month and down 13% over October 2016. The average and median prices of homes continues to rise, even with fewer sales – 2.4% higher than September and 7.9% higher than October 2016. These higher home prices have resulted in an increase of 18% in total YTD volume over 2016 YTD. So, while following the normal cycle, we are still above last year in nearly all aspects.
