Selling Price per Square Foot
The Selling Price per Square Foot is a great indicator for the direction of Property values. Since Median Sales Price and Average Sales price can be impacted by the ‘mix’ of high or low end Properties in the market, the selling price per square foot is a more normalized indicator on the direction of Property values. The March 2015 Selling Price per Square Foot of $150 was down 5.6% from $159 last month and up 6.7% from 141 in March of last year.
Selling Price vs Original List Price
The Selling Price vs Original Listing Price reveals the average amount that Sellers are agreeing to come down from their original list price. The lower the ratio is below 100% the more of a Buyer’s market exists, a ratio at or above 100% indicates more of a Seller’s market. The March 2015 Selling Price vs Original List Price of 97.0% was down from 98.1% last month and up from 96.1% in March of last year.
