The inventory of available Howell homes is at a low for the year at 198 units. Even though we had 18 new listings in the last 7 days, 20 were sold in the same period, and when you count in expired listings and those pended (taken off market pending the sale), we're at a net loss.
For the 20 sold properties, the average days on market was 45 - a quick time period. But the median time on market was a blistering 18 days! Buyers - don't hesitate when you find something you like, I want to throw in a pitch for LOCAL, full-time agents, too. We know the little nuances of our market in ways that you can't decipher from looking at multilist statistics. Plus, we can react faster and get you into a home quicker than an out of area agent.
The average and median sales prices were very close, right around $200,000, and the price per square foot is within what we normally see for the Howell market, $100-$125/sq ft.
Sellers - if you've been waiting for warmth and sunshine but are able to list now you'll be doing yourselves a favor. There is high demand and low inventory. That will likely change by the beginning of May. More competition usually gets you top price and the quickest sales.
