Real Estate Broker/Owner with Cardinal Realty ~ 319-400-0268

41 homes sold in Iowa City in March 2011 compared to 45 in March 2010. Last year the first time homebuyer tax credit pulled home sales forward and bumped up the numbers for the year. When you take that into account the number of homes sold this year looks really good. Altogether there is a lot of activity in the Iowa City real estate market at the moment. I'll be watching to see how the housing market shapes up in Iowa City in the coming months so check back for updates, or better yet Subscribe to my blog for email updates.

As far as the days on market are concerned, according to data from the Iowa City Area MLS, homes were on the market longer in March 2011 compared to 2010. Single family homes and condos both spent an average of 109 days on market in March 2011 compared to 93 days for single family homes and 87 days for condos in 2010. Data for days on market is highly manipulated due to expired listings and re-listed properties so I'd suggest you talk to a Realtor about the actual absorption rate (aka days on market). MLS calculations are usually skewed low. Depending on the neighborhood you live in the average days on market could be higher.
