Ann Arbor Real Estate Statistics – November 2008

From Big House Data:

Broken record time: Price and Quality sell properties!  Time and again, if you’ve got a great price on your property and awesome quality, the property will sell.  Many would be sellers have gotten part of this message and that fact is reflected in the nearly one-third drop in new listings this year.

Coupled with the decrease in listings, is the increase in closings for the year.  That’s right, there have been more properties sold in 2008 than were sold in 2007!  With the average sales price where it is, this is high time for first time homebuyers, and they are the ones, anecdotally, buying homes in greater numbers.

The key to any successful sale in this market includes two keys:  price and quality.  If you’ve got great quality and the best price in comparison to your competition, you will be the next sale in your market.  Pfizer taught us this in early 2007 and the lesson still applies.

On to the charts:
