2020 is off to a slower start as the shortage of inventory is now impacting market momentum. Although we have higher sales than the five-year average, due to increased condo sales, the persistent supply challenges seem to have finally caught up with us.

The average sale price, of a residential home, for January was $516,229 compared to an average sale price of $432,746 in 2019 for the same month.  A 19.3% increase since this time last year.

The $300,000 – $400,000, and the $400,001 – $499,999 price range continues to have the highest concentration of properties sold, even though properties above the half million dollar mark are seeing significant increases, followed by the $150,000 – $299,999 range in condominiums. REALTORS assisted in renting roughly 243 properties since the beginning of 2020.
