2016 Monroe NY Real Estate Results

The real estate sales results for 2016 are now available as seen by the chart below. The overall story for 2016 was healthy volume. In 2015, a total of 169 homes were sold in the Monroe NY area, but in 2016, that number jumped to 227, an increase of 34%. That being said, the median price points remained relatively flat. In 2015, the median sales price was $267,800 and in 2016 it was $269,000.

2016 Monroe NY Real Estate Results

As can be seen by the chart above, December's median sales price was 24% higher than the same time last year. It was also higher than the last few months. No short sales were included in December, although there were two foreclosures. Decreasing distressed properties can increase average and median sale prices.


Looking just at 2016 results, It is evident that the number of sales per month was healthy. In the first few months of the year, the # of sales were between 10-15 per month. They then rose to and remained around 20-25 each of the following months. That's a strong rate for the Monroe area.

In terms of inventory, currently there are only 86 single family homes for sale which is the lowest level for the area in the last five years. Because of low inventory, median prices may start moving up in 2017. I do expect buyers to be out in larger numbers, especially those who have been on the fence. Small rises in interest rates might push them into getting off that fence to start looking for the perfect home. If you have a home to sell in the area, definitely give me a call! New inventory is needed!

Even though the value remained almost unchanged the uptake in numbers more than offset that.  Nice report

That is a huge volume increase from 2015 to 2016, but the median home price stayed flat. I am assuming there were more homes entering the merket to dilute the effect. I do see many more New Yorkers down here in the Sarasota Area!

Seems like a decent market to me, I hope that Sellers will give you a call to list their home and build up the inventory!

Sandy/Norm - Inventory shrank throughout the year, which is why the lack of price gain is a bit confusing.

Brian - Me too!

Jeffrey - That could be; we've actually been pretty luck with temperatures so far.

Debbie - I hope this year is better also, and your weekend is going well!

Gabe - And thank you for reading it!

Larry/Sheila - They'd like it better if the December sales prices continue this year!

Patricia - Thank you! I wish you the same.
