Monthly Multi-Family Market Report for St Louis City - April 2011

Real Estate Agent with Platinum Realty 1999090686

Following is my market report (FINALLY) for Multi-Family Dwellings (2-4 Family Buildings) in the city of St Louis (Areas 1,2,3,4,5).  These statistics were gathered from the local Multiple Listing Service and are provided as a service to the public:

There were 454 Total Active Listings on the market.

35 listings Sold in the month of April.

Average sales price was $54,997.

Maximum sales price was $299,000.

85 was the average days on market (DOM).

79 listings were Newly Active (New Listings) on the market, with list prices ranging from $5,000 to $389,900.

10 listings went Under Contract (Contingent/Option), with list prices ranging from $12,000 to $119,900.

77 listings moved closer to closing (Pending), with List prices ranging from $4,900 to $335,000.

35 listings Sold, with Sold prices ranging from $2,000 to $299,000. 

44 listings Expired from the market, with List prices ranging from $6,000 to $485,900.

And 16 listings went Inactive (Cancelled/Withdrawn), with List prices ranging from $15,000 to $189,900.

The Pending Ratio was 17%.  This is the Pendings divided by the Actives (77/454).  This is the number of properties going under contract compared to the number of active properties on the market.

The Absorbtion Rate was 12.97.  This is the active homes on the market divided by the number of homes sold in the last 30 days (454/35).  This tells us how many months of inventory we have on the market.  It demonstrates how long it would take to sell all the homes on the market if no other homes came on the market.

For the 35 Sold listings, 37.1% were on the market 0-30 days, and 25.7% were on the market for 120+ days.  For the 0-30 day category, the average sales price to list price ratio was 89.1%.  For the 120+ day category, the average sales price to list price ratio was 61.7%That goes to show homes that are listed correctly sell for more money in a shorter amount of time!!!

Great Reporting! 

Those numbers seem low, are they? The actual number sold resembles our market - but we have under 100,000 people in our area, I just spent last summer in the St Louis area (stayed in Troy) but went into the city often, and I would venture to guess your population is 10 fold to ours. 

again - great report, thank you

Hi Lance.  These stats are just for St Louis City itself.  The metro area is expansive, but the actual City of St Louis is rather small.  We have St Louis City County (the city is a county itself), and St Louis County.  It's kind of a strange set-up.  They've been talking about merging the city and county together for years, and having just St Louis County, but I don't believe that will happen any time soon.  I hope you had a nice summer in Missouri last year.  Have a great week!
