Real Estate Agent with ERA Brokers Consolidated / Cox Magnesen Team

Sorry to post October sales info. so late - we've honestly been very busy with our foreclosure / REO side of the business.  Buyers have continued to recognize significant opportunities available in the current market in the area.  Many of our REO listings in 2009 have had great - excellent showing and offer activity in 2009 with many selling at or above full price with multiple offers.  That is a common observation amongst the very active REO agents in the area.

Sales numbers for most of 2009 has been encouraging and October proved to be an encouraging month.  Sales #'s (153 homes) moved upwards from Septembers (143) and we saw a slight increase in the p/sq. ft. sold price (113.56) from September's figures and days on market (DOM) stay virtually the same.  Short-sales that are actually closing continues to increase and accounted for nearly 1 in every 5 sales - which is encouraging figure for homeowners and agents.

Here are the details of Octobers sales figures:

All sales (includes re-sale, REO, and short-sales):  153 homes (40.17 million sold volume); avg. list price; $277,995 / avg. sold price $267,824 (97%)/ avg. DOM =115; avg. p/ sq. ft. for solds = 113.56
