Big House Data, LLC is providing you with the truest picture of the area housing market!
Thank you Big House Data! Now for the charts and analysis!
From the Big House Data Executive Summary:
On average, single family residences and condominiums sell within 2.12% of their list price. This is a good indicator for the overall market. This means that buyers and sellers are beginning to agree, rapidly, on what price constitutes market value. Due to Pfizer’s withdrawal from Washtenaw County, it is BHD’s opinion that the area housing market learned what it takes to sell a home in this market a lot quicker than the rest of SE Michigan. It was a very short, steep learning curve, but Washtenaw County sellers now know that price sells.

The Average sales price of property in Washtenaw county has fallen as well. Given all the bad news and media hype, one would think the bottom had fallen out. Fortunately, this is not the case.

August 2007’s average sales price was $223,637, down 4%, compared to August 2006’s average of $233,148.
Number of closings v number of sales
Compared to the first eight months of 2006 where 30.1% of listed properties sold, the same time frame in 2007 has seen only 19.9% of listed properties selling! That’s a 10.2% drop in one year.
Compared to the county average of 19.9% of the listings selling, Team366 is proud to announce that we sell 73% of those properties we list….and that’s just this year!
