Here’s the Westampton Real Estate market update for July 2008.  Pended units for July were down 3 and Sold units were down 4 compared to July 2007; listed units were down 3 versus 2007.  This has led to a current inventory of 104 units.  Westampton has been averaging 8 units sold per month which means there is currently 13 months worth of inventory in Westampton.  This trails the overall Burlington County market, which has 12 months worth of inventory. Year to date listed units are down 55 (a 36.4% decrease), pended units are down 31 (a 58.5% decrease) and sold units are down 33 (a 70.2% decrease).  See how this compares to the Burlington County Market.

Over the last 3 years the average number of units pended and sold in July was approximately 19 & 14 respectively.  This July, there were 8 units pended and 9 sold. These numbers indicate a market that is adding inventory faster than it can be absorbed.  The average Days on Market for the year is 109.  If you see real estate as a long term investment, now is a great time to buy or “move-up” because the numbers are working in your favor.  

What does all this mean?  If you are thinking of buying or selling right now it’s important that you seek the advice of a full time professional realtor who can best advise you as to how to take advantage of this market.
