MARKET TREND ANALYSIS:
Homes in the Hicksvile School District continue to sell for close to what they have all year, and for not much less than 2007. While inventory is rising, it is not by a large enough margin to put a lot of downward pressure on home prices. In fact, the average days on market is lower in the area than in most surrounding areas. This indicates that homes that are priced to sell are finding buyers relatively quickly. A number of homes that closed this month were on the market for 30 days or less, and the ratio between sold price and list price remains stable.
Homebuyers, particularly those buying their first home, will have opportunities to move into the area at prices that were hard to come by last year. The increased inventory ensures that homebuyers will have a good selection of homes to choose from, and home sellers in the area need to factor in their competition when pricing their homes.
