Pocono Real Estate Market Report - September 2014

 

When reviewing the Pocono Real Estate Market Report - September 2014, we take a look at the Average Prices (Average List Price, Pended Price and Sold Price).

As the chart shows the distance between the Average List Price and the Average Sold Price is still much farther apart than what we would like to see.  The Average Sold Price for September went up 4% to $142,790 however the average sold price for the year fell to $131,185, down 3.46%.

 

The Number of Foreclosures sold in the Poconos continues to be too many and was 30.8% of the Sold homes in the Poconos for September.  This rate is what causes our Average Sold Price to continue to drop. We would like to see foreclosures be no more than 10% of our Market.

 

Pocono Real Estate Market Report - September 2014

 

The NUMBER OF HOMES SOLD in the Pocono Real Estate Market Report show 224 homes sold for September which is 27% higher than last year at this time. GREAT NEWS!

 

The AVERAGE SOLD PRICE of homes sold in the Pocono Real Estate Market Report shows $131,185 for the month, down 3.46% from last years price of $135,892.

 

The ABSORPTION RATE is currently at 13.75 months, down from last September which was 15.46 months and down from August as well, which is a good thing.  A Balanced Real Estate Market has an Absorption Rate of 6 months.

 

The AVERAGE DAYS ON THE MARKET dropped to 152 for September, versus 164 for last September and dropped to 128 days, year to date. Good News Too!

Bobbie, overall it appears that the Pocono real estate market is improving.  Though, I'm sure you's like the pace to be  a little faster.

Hi Gabe, You're right. Our progress slowed in July and August which does not make any sense.

That is a large percentage of foreclosures. Hopefully soon that number will drop drastically.
