Battle Ground Resale Home Sales -
Units Sold Trend January 2021
This is the time of year where the short-term line is declining, and we expect to see this line below the long-term line. The long-term trend-line is showing to be in a generally positive/upward Move. Super low availability of homes for sale is truly a challenge for this measurement to move much higher in the near term.
Next up is my graph for the Average Sales price trend:
Battle Ground Resale Home Sales -
Avg Sales Price Trend January 2021
The short-term and long-term trends are both in a seasonal slowing-phase, after having made perhaps the strongest upward moves in the past 9 years. Active Inventory at this Record Low level is expected to keep the pressure on Prices; even with interest rates starting to rise.
These final graphs come from RMLS for Battle Ground WA showing:
Battle Ground Resale Home Sales Inventory
& Days on Market January 2021
Pending Home Sales fell from last month; while New Listings held steady; and Closed Sales fell. The continued weak level of new listings is keeping the Inventory level at the low, low 0.5 month's worth of supply.
In the second graph here, the Average Price for New Listings and Closed Sales came in at the same very high level.
Lastly, the Average Days on Market rose by only 2 days; and Median Days on Market actually Fell by 6 days!!! The Sales Pace for new listings is quite brisk as shown by the Median Days on Market measurement.
