Ann Arbor Real Estate Market Report Show 4 Months Supply For First Half of 2012

Was your house one of the 723 Sold properties in Ann Arbor, Michigan over the past 6 months? Ann Arbor homes will sell quickly when priced and marketed properly.

There were  238 homes that sold in a price range of $200K – $300K.   This was the largest segment of active listings @ 129 out of the total number of  active listings of 486.  In this price range the average list price was $254,447.  This price range averaged 53 days on market.  The average sales price was $242,634. During this 6 months there was an approximate 3.3 months of inventory available pushing toward a Sellers Market.

The 3.3 months of inventory is determined by knowing the total number of active listings (homes currently for sale) and the total number of homes that sold over a specific period of time.  Take the total number of sold homes that you are comparing, in our case 238 divide by 6 months  = 39.66.  Then take the total number of active listings you are comparing and this is 129 in our $200K – $300K segment and divide by 39.66 and you will get approximately 3.25 rounded to  3.3 as the Absorption Rate or Months of Inventory (before any new properties come on the market).  Place this into a heat index, located along the right hand side of the chart below, shows the absorption rate of every segment  of the inventory.  The color Red indicates a favorable Selling Market and Blue indicates a Buyers Market.    To read the complete  report go to the  ANN ARBOR REAL ESTATE MARKET REPORT FOR THE FIRST HALF OF 2012 published August 6, 2012.
