Year End Snapshot of the Wilmington NC Real Estate Market...

December just means that 2011 is over.  We have a 7.2% increase in average sales price from last month. When you look at the sales for December you will see that there are only 4 transactions over $700,000. Almost 23% of our sales price range was $200,000 to $299,000 while over 44% of our transactions were for price range of $160,000 and down. Our sold units are up by 8.5% from last month and down 4.6% over last December. Current listing inventory is down by 8.6% from last month (which is to be expected) and the sellers paid concessions is down by 1.0% from last month. The average sold price is up $14,533 from last month and down $20,490 from last December. Our sold units hit 371, an increase of 29 units from last month. On January 1st we saw a decrease of 355 homes in our listing inventory; we have 3,751 homes on the market as of January 1st. This is our lowest listing inventory in a long time. This adjusted our month’s supply with just over 10.1 months a decrease from last month’s 12.4. Our average list price had a decrease this month; we are currently at $343,088. In December sellers paid concessions in about 29.6% transactions, about 1% lower than last month. Our average days on the market decreased to 152 days. The list to sold ratio has increased a little to 94.1% this number needs to continue to get better. The number of homes that sold in 15 days or less continues to remain very low, 12.9% of December sold homes. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.89% with an average 0.7 points for the week ending January 12, 2012.
