So what are the key takeaways from this month's numbers?
- Basically, a typical February for Lebanon. The sold volume is right in the normal range, and the median price is almost the same as the prior 2 years.
- The price drops reverse a price bump from the previous month, so nothing alarming there, it's just the normal swings when volumes are lower and more easily influenced.
- The number of homes under contract jumped significantly, to the point that the number of home for sale not under contract dropped.
- Time to sell decreased.
5 homes sold for more than $300,000 and of those 5 only 1 was over $400,000.
- New construction sales accounted for 1 of the 20 sales and 28 of the 74 for sale.
- Distressed properties were nonexistent this month. None for sale and not under contract and none completed sale.
So what does this mean to you as a Lebanon single family home owner?
This is still the slower time of year but look at that Pending number and you know the market is picking up steam. If a buyer needs a Lebanon home the limited inventory works in the seller's favor. 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?
Inventory is TIGHT! 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.
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.
