MARKET TREND ANALYSIS:
There was a significant drop during the month of August for home prices in the Half Hollow Hills School District, in comparison to both 2007 and the previous months in 2008. Luxury home sales factor into the equation, but it is the lower segment of the market that is having the greatest impact. It is rare for homes in the area to sell for less than $400K, however, there were 2 homes sold in the high $300K range, and one in the mid $200K range (which is almost unheard of).
The market has definitely declined from 2007, but not to the degree that it would appear based on this month's numbers. Since the monthly reports offer a fairly small sample size, it is easy for the numbers to show extreme fluctuations. The inventory numbers are only slightly higher than 2007, so there shouldn't be a lot of pressure on home prices. However, there is an ample amount of inventory, so home sellers need to price their homes to sell if they are truly motivated to move. Homebuyers will find opportunities at a variety of price points in the area, and they should keep in mind that properly priced homes can still sell relatively quickly, so waiting for price breaks is not always the best approach.
