I’ve been hoping for 100+ sales per month the rest of the way this year.

Currently, the October count is 108, so it should get up to around 120 sales by mid-November.  Here are the monthly sales and pricing for 2022:

I noted last week that the September average and median sales prices were both 23% lower than they were in March. It looks like the final October data could end up being higher.

The average and median sales prices are easily affected by the types of homes that are selling.  The recent environment has had smaller, less-expensive homes selling, while the higher-end market has been languishing.

Let’s include more statistics to fill out the picture:

While the October average and median sales prices make it look like we’ve turned the corner, once you analyze the house sizes and $$/sf, you’ll see that buyers are still getting more for their money today.

Unfortunately, none of the talking heads in the media will look any further than the median sales price.

Once their house-hunting vacation concludes in February, all potential home buyers will do is decide if the change in the median sales price supports their mindset about purchasing.
