Last month, across Ada County the median sales price and the number of closed sales and pending transactions hit new record highs - while total inventory (i.e. the number of homes available for sale) hit a record low.

While there are a number of variables that impact home prices in every market, the bottom line comes down to simple supply vs. demand. With demand so high and supply so low, homes across the valley are being listed at - and then sold for - higher prices. While we've had low inventory for years, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably put additional pressure on our market's supply/demand relationship.

At Jonna Weber Real Estate, our goal continues to be to ensure that you always have access to the information and resources you need to make informed decisions about your real estate investments. If you'd like to discuss your unique situation, please feel free to give us a call.

 Summary:  If you group together both existing and newly constructed single-family homes and compare those numbers to the same month one year ago, inventory plummeted by an incredible 56.8% and the median sales price increased by 11.7% (and now sits at $390,000). It's important to note that even with such low (record-breaking) inventory, more homes sold (a notable increase of 22%).

If you then examine just existing/resale homes (and remove all the newly constructed homes from the statistics) the general year-over-year trends noted above remain similar - but the decrease in inventory is even more dramatic - down an incredible 62.7%! Keep in mind that last year at this time we thought inventory was low - and now it's significantly lower. If you are considering selling a home or property... let's chat!

And finally, if you look at just newly constructed homes, the overall trend remains pretty consistent. New homes are selling for a median price of $425,625 and there are substantially fewer of them available than there were one year ago (inventory is down an incredible 50.3%) - and yet, 40.6% MORE are selling.
