Only 12% of the houses sold last month actually closed over their list price, which sounds normal.

There were 51 of the 115 of the sales (44%) that closed for $100,000+ BELOW their last list price.

The count of 51 broke down to 17 of 19 sales over $3,000,000, and 34 of 96 sales under $3,000,000 – where knocking off $100,000+ off the list price is fairly significant. Either realtors aren’t that great about their pricing, or they wander into lowball territory and get their head tore off.

The median days-on-market was 28 days, and the average was 41 days.

About half wandered into lowball territory, and about half sold for $100,000+ below their list price – there is a direct connection. People need to figure out how to sell the house in the first couple of weeks of being on the market, or face the same consequences in 2023.

In October, when the average and median sales price spiked, it didn’t mean your home’s value went up – the homes sold that month had a median square footage that was 12% higher than in September. Similarly, the group of homes that sold in November had a median sf that was 8% smaller than in October.

But if you do want to make a big deal of these sales prices, they are similar to those in July, 2021.

At least there were 100+ sales!
