 Pine Valley Country Club   The first quarter 2013 residential Real Estate market for Northwest Allen county saw slightly lower average and median sales prices than the same time one year ago. Activity remained steady and the amount of time taken to sell homes improved while inventory continues at low levels. For the purposes of this study data is compiled for all sales of single family, common interest detached (villas), and common interest attached (condo's/townhomes) homes within Perry, Eel River, and Lake townships and sold between January 1st and March 31st of 2013 and data from other 2012 quarters for comparison purposes.  This study does not include the sale of land,lots,multifamily homes or commercial properties.

 

 

Number of Homes Sold in the 1st Quarter of 2012 in Northwest Allen County: 119

Number of Homes Sold in the 1st Quarter of 2013 in Northwest Allen County: 117

 

Average Days on Market for homes sold in the 1st Quarter of 2012: 101

Average Days on Market for homes sold in the 1st Quarter of 2013:   79

 

     With inventory struggling to keep pace from the 183 solds last quarter and the steady demand through the winter, the days on market saw a 22% improvement over this same time a year ago. The pace was similar from last quarter where it took an average 78 days to sell a home in Northwest Allen County.  I expect even shorter market time going into the 2nd quarter as the average days on market for those homes sold in March dipped to 58 days. The number of homes sold in March was also the highest (42) of the 3 months last quarter.

 Median Sales Price of homes sold in the 1st quarter of 2013 in Northwest Allen County:   $149,900

 

     Sales prices dropped slightly from both a year ago and last quarter in most part due solely to the February 2013 sales figures where the avg sales price dropped to $149,308 for the month, dragging the the average down for the quarter. Outside of February, January and March sales numbers were similar to the other quarters.

avg and median sales prices

 

    There are currently 221 homes for sale in Northwest Allen county with an average list price of $271,616. This translates in to a little more than 3 1/2 months of inventory.  With a typically balanced market having 6 months of inventory, I expect the 2nd quarter to see increased upward pressure on sales prices and continued low market time given the inventory levels we are currently experiencing.
