North Shore Market Update – May 2013

I think it’s safe to say that the recession is over and the recovery has taken hold. The housing market continues to gain momentum, with home sales up 10% on the North Shore from May of last year.

North Shore Market Update – May 2013 vs. Year Ago

May 2013 real estate data

Although prices for May show a slight dip, it is just one month’s data. The median price for 2013 year to date market data is a better indicator of what’s really going on. It’s up 3%, right in line with the economists’ predictions (for once) and almost all villages are showing price appreciation on a year to date basis.
Meanwhile market time continues its steady decline, with homes staying on the market just an average of 4.3 months. While that sounds like a long time, the market time during a “normal” market is 6 months. Plus, averages can be misleading. The fact is that many houses are selling in a matter of days and with multiple offers. There is just not enough inventory to meet the current buyer demand.
