Happy New Year! We’ve had a great start with impressive snow conditions, fun events and a busy real estate market. I hope you’re happy with your start too!
Year end market stats: The number of transactions increased by 4% and the dollar volume increased by 18% over 2014. Average home prices increased by 12%, condos by 16%.
The average price per square foot for a home in 2015 was $346, condo $406.
Currently – Inventory remains low, causing quick sales of well-priced and unique properties. Most sellers do expect to negotiate some, but the sale price to asking price ratio is increasing.
Planning on selling soon? The 5 Golden Rules of Home Staging on a Budget: When you show your home’s best features by staging it effectively, you help increase your final selling price without breaking the bank. In fact, on average, sellers receive $2 in increased sale price for every $1 they put into staging a home.
