The St. Louis Real Estate Market this week shows a small gain in active listings, with fewer homes accepting contracts, thus our pending ratio has declined back to almost 15 percent from last week's 16.16 percent.  Not to worry-so far. This is the time of year that we should be seeing more than meager increases in active listings and buyer activity increasing a bit more.  The next 4-6 weeks will tell us if we will be seeing our usual summer activity or whether the summer of 2008

The St. Louis Real Estate Market this week continues in our usual Spring trends with increased active listings, a pending ratio very close to 16%, and our average list prices just inching up slightly.  In most price ranges, though, we are still below the average list prices we saw a year ago at this time.   Our inventory levels in St. Louis are remaining in that Transitional range of 5-7 months, with 6 price ranges falling below 6 months of inventory.

The St. Louis Real Estate Market this week continues to show better buyer activity as evidenced by the pending ratio pushing up over 15% for the first time since August 2007.  In some of the price ranges between $125,000 and $299,000 pending ratios are as high as 18.7%.  Homes that are on the market now are selling, and those that are priced at market value are selling quickly. HOWEVER,  don't get buyer activilty and increased home sales confused with pricing.  Home prices still continue to decline, and by all indications and predictions by the "experts", we will continue to experience home price … (0 comments)

The St. Louis Real Estate Market marches forward through the snow this week with an increased number of homes accepting contracts (pendings) and the average pending ratio near 13%.  In the price ranges between $125,000 and $200,000 the pending ratios are above 16%.  Perhaps some of the market predictions are beginning to come true, as we are seeing our average sale prices inching upward a bit also.  The average list price to sales price percentages are also improving in some price ranges.  In all price ranges, except for the $800,000 and above range, we see anywhere

The St. Louis Real Estate Market this week continues to show signs of improvement with increases in active listings and homes accepting contracts.  Our pending ratio has climbed to almost 12%.  That's almost a 1% jump in one week.  In the lower price ranges that move our St. Louis market, we see pending ratios already over 12%.
We are also seeing in the last week or so, the average list prices are going up ever so slightly along with the average selling prices.  The comparison between the average list price to the average selling price over the last six months has … (0 comments)

With cooler weather here, kids back in school and Halloween candy already in the stores, I guess they (whoever "they" is) would like us to believe that Fall is here.  We see a lot of frustrated sellers in the same frame of mind, believing that the "prime selling season" is over.  This time of year is … (0 comments)
