Sales volume up 13% year over year, with the average sales price showing a 16% jump
(March 2014) The sales picture for real estate here in Sullivan County continues to show improvement. For the latest 3 month period ending 2/28/2014, the number of single family sales, 119, was 13% over the same period a year earlier. The average sales price clocked a 16% jump over the previous year, but the median sales price remains stubbornly stuck in the $120's.
That split between the movement in the average and median does indicate some strengthening in the mid/upper market, with some higher sales pulling up the average. For the lastest 3 month period, there were 6 sales above $400,000, including 3 in the $500's — but no closed sales above that range. But even with a bit of strengthening, the upper end is still pretty soft.
Sellers should be cautious about jumping to the conclusion that individual houses are worth 16% more than a year ago. The 16% jump in the average can be largely attributed to buyers at 'better' properties with more land or features at higher price points.
For the latest 3 month period, single family homes here sold for an average of 89.2% of asking price, and 81.1% of the original asking price.
