Statistics are in and 2016 was quite a year for our overall market, posting over 17,000 sales – the 2nd highest number ever. Transactions were up 10% over 2015, with a median sale price increase of 4.3% overall. This is a strong but still sustainable year over year increase in price, with price per square foot up in nearly every area we serve.

With number of listings at an all time low, the overall area is showing 3 months of inventory. 6 months of inventory is considered a balanced market, so as you can see we are squarely in a sellers market for most areas. If you are thinking of making a move, 2017 may be the year to consider listing your home.
