We're already in the third week of November and I'm just getting out the October stats for the Washington County real estate market, but here they are!
The number of single-family homes that sold in October is up about 7% over September, but down about 10% from October of last year.
The average sale price in October ($226,877) is up from September ($212,103) about 7% but down just a bit--3%--from October 2012 ($234,998).
Finally, the days on market (number so days from when the house was listed until it is put into a "pending" status, meaning all contingencies have been removed) is up about 27% over September, but down 13% from October 2012.
So what does all of this mean? It certainly seems that although houses didn't move as quickly, they are still moving, and the prices are showing a nice, steady increase.
It'll be interesting to see how things turn out for the remaining weeks of the year. Check back here for the latest updates!
