Why is this number important? A key calculation Real Estate agents use to track is how fast the Housing Inventory is turning over is how many months of inventory is on hand. When we divide the number of available properties on the market by the number sold we determine how many months of inventory is available. Typically, when we are under three months of inventory this is considered a Seller’s market. This means there is more competition for homes, and homes typically sell closer to list price, and often with multiple offers. The real estate community generally considers under 3 months of inventory to indicate a seller’s market, while more than 4 months of inventory is moving towards a buyer’s market.
What does this mean if you are selling your Home in Chandler?
As a seller, we see that inventory levels are up slightly in March and sales are up as well. For March, we had an average number of days on market of 68 days, down from the 70 days we saw in February. If priced correctly, sellers can expect to sell in less than the average 68 days on market we saw in March. Buyers are not going to overpay, but houses priced correctly and in good condition will sell, often with multiple offers. For March, we saw the list to contract price was up from 96.7% to 97.2%. We also saw the median price increase from $270,000 to $285,000. Good news for sellers.
What does this mean if you are buying a Home in Chandler?
For buyers, this means there is a bit more inventory on the market to choose from, and those homes sold for more money with more competition. The median price in Chandler continues to increase. The months of inventory decreased slightly from 2.1 months to 1.4 months. Homes priced correctly relative to location and condition are selling closer to the original list price and selling quickly. If you are serious about an offer, have your agent provide you comparable properties to determine the best price for the house. Asking for seller concessions and making a low ball offer is not a good strategy in a seller’s market. Remember, sellers also know the value of their home in this market. Their agents are keeping sellers updated on recent sales and homes similar to theirs as they come on the market.
