Signs of a Sellers Market• Inventory is very low as compared to previous months / years.• Less than six months of inventory is on the market.• Comparable sale prices are lower than active listing prices.• More buyers are purchasing, resulting in higher closed sale numbers.• Median sales prices are increasing.• Listings spend less time on market i.e. lower days on market http://www.ehomesurf.com/
Median vs Average• Average otherwise known as the mean is ﬁgured by taking a total for a group and dividing by the number of members.• The median is the middle number or the 50th percentile.• Both are useful but the median is less inﬂuenced by outliers than the average. http://www.ehomesurf.com/
Sold vs Sale Price• By measuring the value of the sold price vs the asking price we can measure buyer’s interest in a given market.• Market’s showing high demand will often show sales prices in excess of asking price• Effective pricing is the most tried and true strategy for getting the most value for your home. http://www.ehomesurf.com/
