What happened in July?
The rate of new inventory entering the market remained strong in July with nearly 100 new listings coming online. Down from June's high of 110, more properties hit the market this July than in July of 2019 (91 new listings). The total listing volume topped $300 million for only the second time since last July 2019 ($320 million). The average listing price remained above $3 million for the second month in a row, and the 4th time in 2020. The median list price dropped in July, down to just under $1.8 million from $2.175 million in June. Despite the declining median list price, the majority of new listings in July we're in the $3+ million segment, the first time we've ever seen the majority of a month's new listings in this price point. A staggering 35 new listings hit the market in excess of $3 million with 4 listings over $10 million, including homes in 3 Creek Ranch and up at the Amangani, and a slope side private residence at the Four Seasons. Nearly 30 properties hit the market in both the $500 - $1 million "locals market" and the $1-3 million segment. Over half of the new listings in July were for single-family homes, a section of the market that has seen healthy sale activity over the past few months. Nearly 60 new lot listings have entered the market since May, more than in the previous 9 months combined.
