Montgomery County continues to see steady prices, with May’s median home sale price of $431k a 2.62% increase from this time last year.
Montgomery County Stats – May 2014
The average seller is getting about 98.18% of their asking price, quite impressive and even a slight improvement from last month. This is no small feat given the 34.6% increase in inventory over this time last year.
Pending sales have dropped off 9.71%, and the number of homes sold has also slowed by 4.7% from last year.
Fortunately, interest rates are moving within a very steady band, and continue to hover in the 4.3% range, making homes very affordable.
While inventory is up, neighboring Howard County has seen a much larger uptick in inventory. And at 39 days on market, compared to Howard County’s 51, it’s still a very fast market in the region.
