Low Inventory & High Buyer Demand Continue to Influence Home Prices
Across Ada County the median sales price for existing homes has continued to rise and has now reached a record high of $342,990. This new record is a year-over-year increase of 12.5% and is largely due to the persistently low inventory of listed homes and heightened buyer demand. With fewer lower price-point homes on the market, the share of higher priced homes continues to rise, which also contributes to the overall increase in median homes prices.

Summary: Compared to the same month one year ago (May 2018), the median sales price for existing homes in Ada County increased by 12.5%, and total inventory also increased by 13.9%. The increase in both price and inventory influenced how many homes sold overall - and how quickly they sold. As it currently stands, homes continue to sell faster than they did one year ago.

And for newly constructed homes, compared to one year ago, the median sales price is up 14.7% and inventory remains high. With buyer demand still high and bidding wars commonplace, it is a great time to consider looking into newly constructed homes. We've recently had a number of wonderful experiences helping our clients move into their dream homes quickly and easily.

SUPPLY VS. DEMAND - WHY INVENTORY MATTERS
Our friends over at Boise Regional Realtors created the following graphic to explain how the Months Supply of Inventory (MSI) (and supply and demand) impact the real estate market.


Summary: For a market to be deemed balanced (i.e. not favoring buyers or sellers) there is typically between 4-6 months worth of supply of homes listed for sale. In May 2019, the Months Supply of Inventory metric for Ada County was at just 1.5 months for all price points combined, and for existing homes priced below $300,000 MSI was at one month. To balance out our market needs additional inventory of listed homes (especially existing homes below the $300,000 price point).
