Charleston SC Homes For Sale : August 2016 National Housing Trends

Market for Non-Distressed Properties Remained Seasonally Strong in July

Demand for non-distressed properties from current homeowners helped the strong housing market seen this summer continue in July, according to results from the latest Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking Survey.
 
The sales-to-list price ratio on non-distressed properties was 98.3% in July, based on a three-month moving average. The metric has increased each month since February when it was at 97.1% and was nearing the peak of 98.5% seen in July 2015.  “There’s still a shortage of inventory which has led to increasing numbers of offers and prices,” said a real estate agent in Illinois.
 
States on the west coast had the highest sales-to-list price ratios in July, with the Pacific Northwest posting a ratio of 100.1% and California at 100.0%. Florida had the lowest average sales-to-list price ratio in July at 95.6%.  “If priced right, listings do not last,” said a real estate agent in California. “Buyers are not biting on overpriced listings.”
 
Non-distressed properties accounted for 83.3% of homes sold during July with an average price of $300,900, up 3.7% compared with July 2015.  Current homeowners have accounted for a growing share of home purchases in recent months, outpacing first-time homebuyers and investors. Current homeowners accounted for 48.6% of home purchases in July, followed by first-time buyers with a 39.0% share and investors with a 12.4% share.  Learn more about the August 2016 National Housing Trends here.
