Comparing the 1st Half 2017 vs the 1st Half 2016, the “Total Sales Volume” and “Total Number Sold” both dropped for 2017. However, it is interesting to note that although fewer homes sold in the 1st Half of 2017 vs the same time in 2016, the “Average Sale/SF Living” increased ↑14.1% for 2017. As expected, “Average Days on Market” continues to decrease as listing inventory remains at an all-time low.
