Market Report for January 2017
January saw predictably steady market growth with a slight increase in average list to sales price as well as a slight decrease in months of inventory. However, there was a significant uptick this month in change in average price. This reflects the greater volume of homes sold in a higher price bracket than in previous months more so than individual home prices drastically increasing. We believe the trend of greater sales in higher price brackets will continue this year as more people move into the Asheville-Buncombe market from other markets.

My Market Stats
In Western North Carolina we are around 5% above our long term norms. Mortgage payments have dropped 10% since 2004 and the average monthly mortgage payment for a median priced home is now $849 compared to $924 in 2004 making housing more affordable. We will continue to see distressed sales playing a role in keeping home prices down. The area also has inflated home inventory this which keep the “buyers” market in place through the year.
However, home sales are starting to pick up and hopefully, by the end of 2012 we will see the local housing market start to stabilize. This is the first time we have thought this since 2006!!
