 Rye NH Real Estate Market Update - Rye New Hampshire Homes for November 2008

Rye NH Real Estate - Ordiorne State Park - Ann Cummings Copyright 2008
Rye New Hampshire
is a lovely slice of NH beauty right along the coastline.  Rye has rocky coastline and sandy beaches, as well as beautiful inland areas.  We have some gorgeouse new construction and newer homes right alongside antique farmhouses, and we have seasonal cottages, too.

The real estate market in Rye NH has been like many other NH and Maine Seacoast towns here in this area, up and down.  Like everywhere else, everyone always wants to know how the real estate market is, here in Rye and all along the Seacoast areas.  Real estate impacts so many facets of the local economy, and many use that as a gauge for how things are now and where they might be going in the near future.

Rye NH homes real estate market for the month of November:

Rye currently has 63 homes for sale through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), and 5 of those homes were new to the market in November.  The average asking price is $1,191,994, and the average days on the market for those homes for sale has been 231 days.

During the month of November, we saw 2 Rye NH homes go sale pending/under agreement.  The average asking price of those homes was $342,950, and the average days on the market was 48 days for those homes.

Four homes in Rye sold/closed during November, and the average selling price of those homes that sold was $526,175, with the average total days on the market for those homes being 56 days.  Those sellers who sold their homes in Rye during November received 96% of their last asking prices

We saw 9 homes in Rye expire from the market without sellingThe main reason homes don't sell during their listing period is they were priced incorrectly for the market and/or condition of the home.  And most likely, these 9 homes didn't sell because they weren't priced correctly, and buyers didn't see them as a good value for the money.

If you're thinking about selling your home, one very important fact to know about your market is the absorption rate.  The absorption rate will tell you how long it will take for the current inventory of homes in Rye NH to be absorbed by the market if no other homes come on the market.  The absorption rate for November 2008 was just under 11 months, which is a little higher than October and a little less than September.  If you want your home sold, you need to know this number to help you price your home accordingly.

    Ann very nice job on the market report, it was easy to understand even for me :)

    Hope the bounces that the market has been taking start to bounce upward more than downward in 2009

    I gotta get me some of those cute little buttons you have at the end of your blog.  May I ask, where did you get them?

    Hi Ann

    As a former NH resident who lived in the lovely little town of Bedford, I often miss NH. I now live in the oceanfront town of Marshfield, MA halfway between Boston and Cape Cod. I've been working fro the past 5 years as a licensed home inspector here in Massachusetts and with a total of 30 years or more in the construction business. Although I occasionally work in NH doing home inspections, I'd like to get up there more often. As you probably already know, being a licensed home inspector in MA takes a fair amount of effort, you have to pass a tough exam, perform 140 supervised inspections just to be able to apply for a license, have liability insurance,and maintain your professional education credits every year. While in the Granite State, all it takes to be a home inspector is a business card. NH may be the "Live free or Die" state, but perhaps MA is the "Be qualified or quit" state. Rye is just a short ride to the Massachusetts border, and if I were choosing between one who is licensed to work in Massachustts with it's tough requirements, and an inspector who can only work in areas that allow unlicensed inspections, well...... I think I know who I'd rather work with on my home purchase. If you, or your clients are looking for qualified inspectors, hiring one who is licensed in Massachusetts will at least get you one who has met strict criteria to be able to work in the field. I assume that you probably already know this Ann.

    I'd like to send you some brochures and discount coupons for your client's use. Don't let the name Massachusetts Home Authority scare you off, because in this case, being from out of state is a good thing. Let me know where to send you these materials. Jim Morrison, (781)363-0499

    Hi Ann, I hope you have recovered from the storms.  I always love seeing your pictures of your charming homes in NH.  What a great place to live and work!  I agree, absorption rate is so very important...right now ours is about 34 months!  Your market is really quite healthy compared to many!

    Hi Ann,

    I was wondering when you would be getting a localism feature. You always put out good local content so I am not surprised.

    Ann, I love the NE coast.  So beautiful.  I always think every town has such an interesting story to tell.  I don't envy your winters though.  Your readers are fortunate to have someone who shares such great info.

    Loved this post and the information. Especially appreciate the wisdom that works no matter where you live: " The main reason homes don't sell during their listing period is they were priced incorrectly for the market and/or condition of the home...".

    Hi Everyone - wow, so many comments on one of my market reports!  Thank you all for the feedback on this report, I'm glad so many of you enjoyed this one.  Stats on the market can be boring, so I've played around with formats, etc., and it seems this one is a hit.  I thank you all for reading it and letting me know that it's easy to read and easy to understand.  That's my goal!

    My whole state of NH is beautiful, but I'm so partial to the Seacoast area.  It's even prettier in person than any picture I could ever take.  And I just keep taking more pictures trying to capture the essence of my home areas.

    Thanks again for all the great comments!

    Neal - thanks, and now I know why this got so much attention.  ;-)  Are my pancakes on the way?

    Thanks again to all of you - I very much appreciate you reading this post and I enjoyed reading through your comments!
