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 September 2015 Selling Price per Square Foot of $111 was up 1.3% from $110 last month and up 4.4% from 107 in September 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 September 2015 Selling Price vs Original List Price of 97.4% was up from 97.3% last month and down from 97.6% in September of last year.
