As we reach the end of June we have the opportunity to look back at May to see how the market is fairing. Probably the best indicator for Boulder County is that we are finally starting to see some inventory relief with a 17.9% increase in inventory coming online compared to last year. We are up 12.3% for the year. The increase has made a small dent in our Months’ Supply of inventory with a modest increase to 2.3 months’ compared to 1.9 months last year. These numbers still show we are in a Seller’s market but it is a 21.1% increase in inventory when compared to May 2016.
This limited supply is still pushing pricing up. The median sales price jumped by 13.9% and the average price for the county increased to a whopping $728,003. Pricing has certainly caused a migration of Buyers pushing out east to find more affordable options.
A very interesting stat to look at is Days on Market. Technically this number should have increased with an increased inventory and an increase in Months’ Supply of Inventory, but the number actually decreased by 19.2% to 42 days. What this tells us is that well priced and positioned homes are going under contract very quickly but despite these figures, Buyers are pushing back on some inventory and as a result, we are seeing some homes sit on the market. Expect to see the Days on Market Stats increase in October and November when these Sellers adjust their pricing.
Until next month keep cool, it is hot out there.
