Safe to say that one year ago, none of us could (or would) have predicted what 2020 would bring. And WOW, what a year it turned out to be! Just like all markets, in our local real estate market, we saw ups and downs (and everything in-between). Here's a quick review:

  • The year started out strong. In January 2020, home sales were significantly higher than they were one year prior (up 21.5%).
  • In late February throughout March, we saw sales taper slightly (due to the unpredictability and uncertainties brought on by the pandemic).
  • By April and May (which in normal circumstances, is the timeframe we typically see the market pick up) sales were down largely due to the mandated stay-home order and other restrictions.
  • Come June, we saw a large 22% jump (compared to June 2019) and that jump helped strong throughout the month of November. The result: nearly a year's worth of activity was suppressed into 6 months. In total, 11,728 homes sold in Ada County in 2020 — 5.2% more than in the previous year. 
Even in the midst of all of the challenges that the pandemic brought about, home sales were able to continue due in large part to the widespread adoption to new virtual technology. What a year! We are so grateful to have worked with so many wonderful clients throughout 2020 (thank you for being our silver lining), and are excited for 2021!

SUMMARY:  If you group together both existing and newly constructed single-family homes and compare those numbers to the same month one year ago (detailed in the top infographic: inventory plummeted by nearly 80%, the median sales price increased by 24.3% (coming in at $434,900), and  homes sold SWIFTLY (61.2% faster than one-year-ago).

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 numbers are slightly even more dramatic - or if you are considering selling - significant).  If you're contemplating selling a home or property... it's undeniably a great time to do so. Let's connect to discuss!

And finally, if you look at just newly constructed homes, the overall trend again remains pretty consistent. New homes are selling for a median sales price of $444,900 and there are substantially fewer of them available than there were one year ago (inventory is down by 73.6%) - and they are selling significantly faster (by 62.2%).
