Don’t know about you, but we’ve had enough of the polar vortex! March is three days away and it’s time to get on the ball fields. All this cold weather is certainly having an affect on our real estate market too, let’s take a look at what isn’t for sale in LoCo…
Over the last month we’ve written about what you can get at the various price points. During that stretch, the inventory of available homes has actually dropped by 16 homes. As of this morning there are only 660 non new construction homes active in the multiple listing service. To give a little perspective on that number, 822 homes have been listed for sale this year while 701 have gone under contract.
Going over the numbers a little closer, one segment of the market has really been effected. So far this year 130 homes under $299,000 have gone under contract. As we write this there are only 65 homes available in this price range. That means we have just under a month’s worth of inventory if sales continue at the same pace. As those numbers show, we are off to a slow start this year. Certainly understandable with the extreme cold and amount of snow we’ve had so far this winter.
