Saline Real Estate Upward MovementPositive upward movement in the Saline Real Estate Market.  After reviewing the 24-month chart below, for the Saline, Michigan real estate area there is nothing but good news. Let’s focus in on the red line in the chart. The red line indicates an upward trend in the Linear (Average Square Foot / Sale Price).  The average square foot price is now hovering on the linear red line at around $118.00 per square foot for the month of November, 2011, as compared to November 2010 at approximately $98.00 per square foot. This year, compared to last year shows an approximate 3.9 percent increase in the linear (avg. square foot / sale price) in Saline. This upward trend in sales price per square foot is very good news for Sellers and REALTORs alike.  Home sales are up by 4.65 percent compared to last year’s total number of sales.  This indicates that the market is showing signs of an upward trend and stabilizing slowly over the last 2 years.  Our linear indicator is moving upward. No one’s complaining about this kind of good news as the year 2011 soon comes to a close.  All statistics are worth reporting but it’s a lot more fun and encouraging to put out these positive statistics for Saline area homeowners.

Buyers, as well as Sellers, should pay close attention to these indicators.  While trends are showing signs of a recovery, it’s a great time to take the next step to home ownership or listing your home for sale.  Call to schedule an appointment.
