Market Time
The average Days On Market (DOM) shows how many days the average Property is on the market before it sells. An upward trend in DOM tends to indicate a move towards more of a Buyer’s market, a downward trend a move towards more of a Seller’s market. The DOM for August was 52, up 2.0% from 51 days last month and down 16.1% from 62 days in August of last year. The August 2015 DOM was at a mid level compared with August of 2014 and 2013.

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 August 2015 Selling Price per Square Foot of $132 was down 0.4% from $132 last month and up 6.6% from 123 in August 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 August 2015 Selling Price vs Original List Price of 98.0% was down from 98.1% last month and up from 97.6% in August of last year.
