Midtown Montgomery Real Estate Market Trends - October 2013

Midtown Montgomery Real Estate Market Trends - October 2013

The Fed recently announced they would continue their current pace of purchasing bonds until the economy was stronger. This bond purchasing program is the reason that mortgage interest rates are at historic lows. Rates began to increase over the last several months just on the anticipation that the Fed would announce that they would be reducing the level of bond purchases last month. When that didn’t happen, rates actually decreased.

That was great news for any buyer in the process of purchasing a home. However, this window of opportunity is expected to close in the very near future as most experts expect the Fed to taper the bond purchasers in December.

So, don't let this opportunity pass you by. Leverage your buying power NOW while rates remain low. Contact us today for help!

Take a look at sales figures in our local real estate market for September 2013.

Midtown Montgomery real estate sales statistics for September 2013 show the number of homes sold increased by 28% when compared to September 2012. The average sales price increased by 29% to $ 184,238 for the month. The median sales prices increased by 21%, and market times increased by 52 days from September 2012.  The highest selling home price increased by 33%, and the lowest selling home price decreased by 22% from September 2012.

While it’s tempting to rejoice over these huge increases, it’s important to remember that they compare just one month’s activity in each year.  And because Midtown homes are so different in size, degree of renovation, etc., sales values from year to year reflect more than just “more business” but “different business” as well.  A more important and meaningful statistic is this:  at the end of the September, 2013, selling prices market-wide are up 3.46%.  Yes!!!!!!
