The Academy School District 20 Real Estate Market April 2019
By Murray & Associates – Keller Williams Colorado Springs
The strong sellers market continues this month for Academy District 20 neighborhoods.
We still are not seeing a big increase in the seller concessions in most District 20 neighborhoods and sales price to list price ratio is 99.5% for D20 neighborhoods. This means that sellers are still getting close to their list price and aren’t having to pay buyer concessions to do so. Days on market dropped to 1.6 months.
From one month ago, Active listings are up 1%, and Pendings are up 14%. The pending ratio is 54%, meaning that 54% of the homes currently on the market are under contract with a buyer. Sold properties up 29%. Average sales price is up 7.35% and median sales price is the same. Average days on market dropped to 49 days. Distressed properties continue to be very low with no significant impact on the market.
From one year ago active listings are up 5%, pendings are down 19%, sold properties up 14%, and average sales price is up 9% and Median sales price up 13%.
The average days on market for all of D20 was 49 days in April. Months of inventory is back down to 1.6 months which is the amount of time to sell all active properties at the same rate as of April. This is still at the level of a seller’s market. When it reaches 4 months it is considered a balanced market and above 6 months a buyer’s market.
The market has started to speed up with more buyers in the market. Buyers are encouraged to act fast when they find the right home, and sellers still need to price to sell based on comparable sold properties and be prepared to negotiate on sales price if they need to sell quickly.
More information on the buying process can be found in understanding the home buying process in Colorado Springs. Contact me if you would like to receive my Home Buyer Education emails that explain each step in detail.
