The short-term line is showing the down-trend in closed sales; and appears to have peaked for the season (this can turn-around, however!). The long-term trend line is also showing a stronger-than-typical downward move.

Next up is my Average Closed Sales Price chart showing how high and quickly prices have risen for this market.

Recently when it appeared the price rise had stopped, and perhaps peaked for the season; the strong demand combined with the capability to close the transactions at these higher prices - has pushed prices to a much higher level.

Our final charts are from the RMLS Statistics package showing this month's results in a mixed-line-bar-graph format:

The Inventory-by-Month graph New Listings easing slightly from last month; with Pending Sales and Closed Sales continue their downward move.

The second chart shows the Closed Sales price hitting its all-time high-mark; and the Average List Price posted another very high mark.

Finally, the Average Days on Market jumped up 12 days - to 21 days total which may indicate slowing in this market. Median Days on Market rose by 1 day up to 5 days - which is the 9th month in a row where this element was no more than 4 or 5 days.
