Greetings! I’m Craig Smyser with RE/MAX Capital City. Welcome to the October 2011 edition of “How’s the Market in Steiner Ranch.”
In September, 19 homes closed in Steiner Ranch which was a drop of 32% from the 28 that sold in September 2010. I’m not alarmed, though, as 19 is more in line with sales figures from 2007, 2008, and 2009. None of the 19 sales were distressed sales, meaning either a foreclosure or short sale. Compared to August, the sales were off by almost half. A big drop off from August to September is quite normal in Steiner Ranch.
The average price was down 2.3% from last year while the median was down 9.8%. Personally, I don’t like to compare prices on a monthly basis as they can be too volatile given the smaller data set. If we look at the first 9 months of this year and compare to the first 9 months of last year, the average price is down 2.7% while the median price is up 2.4%. Either way you look at it, it is basically flat compared to last year.
The days on market was a very low 39 days. In fact, that is the second lowest number recorded over the past five years.
