January 2016 Real Estate Results: Monroe NY 10950

Real Estate Broker/Owner with 406-270-3667, kat@thehousekat.com, Broker/REALTOR® RRE-BRO-LIC-75443

As seen below, the real estate results for Monroe, NY are now available for the January 2016 period.



These sale price results may be disappointing to sellers who are holding off putting their homes on the market until prices rise. There is an explanation, though, for the dip in the January 2016 median sale prices of $224K. Over 20% of those sales were foreclosured properties. Another sale was a very low priced cash-only home that needed to be ripped down and rebuilt. So there were quite a few homes which pulled down the median. If those were removed from the mix, the median would have been a much healthier $298K. So anyone who wants to sell their home should take heart. Prices are not as low as they appear at first glance.


Regarding sales volume, sales volume is heading up again in the Monroe NY area, appearing to be signaling a lively spring market. Inventory has declined significantly, though, as indicated in my recent post, and in fact it is now at a very low level of 107 available homes. New inventory is definitely needed!

Hi Kat.  Great explanation about why it looked like prices have fallen but didn't.

Good morning Kat Palmiotti ,

Wow..you are still dealing with foreclosures! Hope their inventory is depleted soon. Good plausible explanation of the "real median" with those properties removed!

Dorie - Actually, we still have quite a few - just heard a report yesterday that in our county, short sales and foreclosures are making up a large portion of active properties.

Gabe - Thank you !

Kat Palmiotti This was particularly insightful and your analysis may be flawed when you consider that you were not involved with every transaction. If you were, the median sales price would be in the $300,000 range!
