Market Snapshot
As we near the end of the year, 2015 will be remembered as the year the pendulum swung to the seller’s advantage. Specifically for whole ownership unrestricted properties under $2 million. This sector of the market experienced the strongest demand over the past 11 months representing 92% of the sales. Selling values for these properties have been slowly increasing since late 2013. Listing inventory has steadily been decreasing since 2011 while the number of sales and sales dollar volume have been steadily increasing. The graphs below tell the story.
