- A cool historic downtown area

- The cost of living in Lebanon is more affordable than some other Warren County communities

So what are the key takeaways from this month's numbers?
- It's a mixed signal month, so depending on how you want to see things, pick the glass is half empty or the glass is half full. Or be a pragmatist, drink the half and go get a refill :)
- On the positive side, take a look at the median price chart. Notice 2018 is on a roll for outperforming 2010-2017.
- On the not so positive side, total sales of 40 seems low. However, take a look at the month before. May was abnormally high. Basically some June sales were "stolen" by May.
- The number of homes under contract is still great.
Prices were almost the same as May, moving down approximately $1,000 on median and eaverage.
- Prices of homes sold had one home below $100,000 and 11 above $300,000.
- New construction sales accounted for 2 of the 40 sales and 28 of the 99 for sale.
- Time to sell on average is still at 5 weeks, although half are under contract in 3 days or less.
- Distressed properties continue to be a very small segment of the market. One of the 40 sales was a foreclosure, and of the 99 homes on market 1 is bank owned and none are a short sale.
So what does this mean to you as a Lebanon single family home owner?
No change from past months. If a buyer MUST buy, the relatively low inventory works to your advantage. That doesn't mean a home that is in poor condition or not priced right will still sell.
Give us a call and we can meet and determine what is best for your personal circumstances.
You're not going up against significant new construction in MOST communities, but places like Shaker Run and Trails of Shaker Run new construction do challenge your ability to sell.
And if you're not quite ready to enter the market, it's the PERFECT time to meet with us and get your To Do list ready to have your home optimally ready for when you ARE ready to sell your home!

So what does this mean to you as a potential Lebanon home buyer?
No change here either. Watch for new homes for sale that fit your needs, but you STILL need to ACT quickly despite the longer time on market for most sellers. When half of the homes sold are under contract in 3 days, it's best NOT to wait for Day 2 or 3 to go see a new home on the market. It's truly a "you snooze, you lose" kind of market.
The selection of foreclosed/short sale homes is minimal to nonexistent, so don't count on finding one to buy, much less one in good condition.
