Last month’s dip in average list and sales price saw the trend line gap close.  This month, the gap appears to be on the way to increasing again.

From the Big House Data executive summary:

Housing is on everyone’s mind these days. How much is the market going to fall before it stabilizes? How much less did my neighbor get than they thought they should get? Why is it taking so long to sell homes? What caused this current market?
While Big House Data does its best to describe what happened, there are times we wish we could pull out the crystal ball and see when the market will turn. With that in mind, there is a silver lining in April’s numbers; the rate of listings across the county has slowed down to right around 2% greater than the same time last year. Yes, it is a slim, silver lining, but it is something to keep watching. If the rate of listing begins to drop below last year’s listing pace, we could be staring at the bottom of the market. That’s not to say that the market will begin to climb again, but rather that it ceases to fall and will likely move sideways for a time until inventory comes off the market.

Anyone want to buy some property?

  1. I’ll kick things off. I am not from the Michigan area. Rather, I have lived in virtually every part of the country, with the exception of the west coast. I was more than a little stunned at the cost of homes in the Ann Arbor/Ypsi area. All markets are unique, I know. But how is it, for example, that homes in neighboring cities such as Toledo and Detroit have huge, gorgeous, historic homes in the 200K range, but a small town like Ypsi is pricing its modest homes over 220K? How did Ypsi get so inflated? Is Ypsi drafting on Ann Arbor, thereby keeping its prices above market average for the state?
