Sales volume up 15.8% year over year, but prices remain soft
(February 2014) The sales picture for the 3 month period ending 1/31/2014 for Sullivan County real estate is pretty good. The number of closed single family home sales was up 15.8% over the same period a year earlier. This is the tenth month in a row with double digit volume increases. On the price front, the picture is more mixed. The average sales price is up 8.6% over the same period a year earlier to $164,473, but the median slipped 5%.
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 15 sales above $300,000, including a $1.5M sale at the Chapin Estate and 2 in the $500's. But even with a bit of strengthening, the upper end is still pretty soft.
For the latest 3 month period, single family homes here sold for an average of 89.2% of asking price, a slight dip from 89.7% last month.
