1st Quarter Results Encouraging

Despite a 25% reduction in the number of homes available for sale in New Albany, 1st quarter unit sales were up 5% over last year. There are currently fewer than 90 homes and condos for sale in the New Albany Plain Local School District. This represents less than a 5 month supply of homes based on the rate of sale for March. This definitely qualifies our current market as one that favors Sellers! As a result, we are beginning to see a slight rise in home prices pretty much across the board – particularly an increase in the list price of homes that are currently in contract. A breakdown of 1st quarter results by New Albany neighborhood follows but I’ve summarized the highlights:

  • The number of homes for sale is down 25% – 87 homes currently available vs. 116 last year
  • Unit sales up 5% for the 1st quarter of 2013
  • The number of homes in contract is up 24% – 78 homes in contract this year vs. 63 last year
  • Average list price of homes in contract is above the average list price of the homes that closed in the 1st quarter in every New Albany neighborhood
  • Homes are selling 40% faster than they did in the first quarter last year – homes averaging 75 days on market this year vs. 126 last year
