Inventory Is Down, and There is Still Pent Up Buyer Demand

Late winter tends to be a quiet time in the market, but we saw far more activity in March than in February; this March, 12 homes were sold compared to 16 last year. The sale-to-list percentage (how close the actual sale price was to the original list price) dipped to 102% in March, down from 105% at the same time in 2022. The data here only tells part of the story. If we dive deeper, we will notice that most of the homes sold this March sold right at asking or slightly below. The homes in the $1M – $1.5M range drove up the average sale-to-list percentage. To capitalize on your investment, you want to work with a real estate expert who understands how to price and market your home strategically so you get maximum return.

Median Sale Price is Trending Down

Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the decrease in sale-to-list ratio, the batch of homes sold in March 2023 sold at a lower price than those in 2022. The median sale price fell to $1.6M from $1.7M in March 2022. Average days to offer increased significantly, indicating a shift to a more “normal” paced market – with 60 days this March as opposed to the 18 days in March 2022. Understanding the nuances of these stats is critical when you are selling your largest financial asset—and that’s precisely why you deserve a strategic marketing plan.

Open Houses Are Packed

While hard data is undoubtedly essential in analyzing the real estate market, it is only part of the story. Another crucial factor to consider is pent-up buyer demand, which is often reflected in the attendance at open houses. When many prospective buyers attend an open house, it is a strong indication of high demand for properties in that particular location. Seeing a crowded open house with interested and engaged buyers can be a valuable indicator of the current state of the market. With the right strategic plan, pricing, and positioning for your property and goals, we can attract maximum offers and sell your home for the best possible price in the fewest days on the market.

Looking Ahead

Here’s what we’ll be watching over the coming months:


  1. Mortgage Rate Stabilization

Economists are expecting interest rates to hover around 6%, but the general consensus is that there shouldn’t be more wild increases anytime soon. This is excellent news for buyers and homeowners that are thinking about selling. You’ll want to be strategic with your marketing to attract high-quality buyers and sell your home fast.

  1. Concord Middle School Tax Impacts

Tax increases across the country have many homeowners wondering what their real estate markets will look like in the near future. Close to home, we have the Concord Middle School tax increases. This is no light issue for some of the homeowners here who might struggle to pay. No one knows how this may affect inventory as yet, but regardless, it’s important to be strategic as a seller in any market.
