What happened in September?
Despite the hot real estate SALES market, new listings dropped off in September, with only 65 properties hitting the market, effectively replacing only 2/3 of the properties sold in September. This marks only the third time this year where monthly new listings have been LESS than monthly sales, and definitely the most dramatic difference. While September saw 25 fewer sales then August, the listing dollar volume was significantly more, reaching $20 million higher than last month. This resulted in an average listing price in excess of $4.2 million as 33 properties came onto the market priced over $3 million and a staggering 9 new listings in excess of $10 million! The median listing price was also up, nearly doubling from August ($1.6 million) and topping $3 million for the first time since I've been recording these statistics.
