A lower addition of new listings added to the market this week and the first time since august that we hit below 400. Sales are also down this week but having lower new listing addition's has caused the mediocre sales to list ratio to gain 2 points. There's life in the market yet with these new additions which actually added stock to the single family home stat, going against the norm for this time of year. Both Condo and SFH's took significant blows to their consistent and reliable values this week with SFH's seeing the worst of it with a 20k drop. Both are still experiencing solid days on market numbers, concluding that the homes for sale are still selling in a timely fashion. The absorption rate bumped over the 40 week mark making it the first time since this stat has been tracked here (7 months). I have included last year stats this week (*) and thinking of making them a permanent addition, what do you think?
