June, as expected, was fairly busy. We saw a total of 27 homes sell last month with an average sales price of $355,428. Last June was a huge month, with 45 home sales in Solon at an average sales price of $324,317.
While last month did not quite live up to the incredible June we had in 2009, it was still a great month. We saw a decent number of moderately priced homes transfer last month, some most likely a result of the home buyer tax credit. Keeping in mind that the tax credit focused on first time buyers, and thus typically lower priced homes, Solon probably wasn't a suburb that was boosted by the credit as much as some of the inner-ring suburbs.
On a side note, nationwide, it was reported that approximately 180,000 home buyers qualified for the home buyer tax credit but were not able to close on time. Therefore, the deadline for closing has consequently been extended to September 30, allowing for people to get their financing in order so they can tax advantage of the credit.
MID YEAR REVIEW
Through the first half of the year, we have had a total of 100 home sales in Solon compared to 112 at this time last year. The average sales price of a home in Solon so far this year is $297,931 compared to $291,212 in 2009.
While 2009 saw about 2 extra sales per month, the average sales price in 2010 is good news. While we cannot say for certain that the market is appreciating, statistics indicate that prices may have at least stabilized.
The Solon luxury home market saw very similar figures, less sales and higher average sales price compared to 2009.
We are seeing more move up buyers take the leap of faith to buy bigger homes here in Solon. Perhaps they feel more comfortable with the economy, or maybe these buyers realize that moving up in a down market makes financial sense, especially with rates so low.
Housing inventories, there are currently 210 single family homes for sale in Solon, have been fairly normal during the first part of 2010 and we don't anticipate seeing a dramatic change. Moving forward, summer and fall are still good months to put your home for sale and historically low interest rates make buying a home in Solon extremely favorable.
Regardless of the overall market in Cleveland, the Solon School system is a major draw for those relocating to the Cleveland area, and the city services and amenities will continue to make Solon a great choice for those buying a home here.
