January 2013 Market Statistics

Where is the Inventory?

January’s closing were down 9% in Ada County from last January, the first decline in same-month sales in recent memory. And yet inventory also declined 4% from the start of January and 13% for the trailing twelve months, leaving us with only 2.7 months of supply.

Canyon County’s closings were also down, 12%, from last January while inventory also fell by 1% during the month and by 11% during the year, leaving us with 3.2 months of properties.

It appears that our lack of inventory is causing a slowdown in the market!  This should create upward pressure on prices and more multiple offers on properties. But we definitely need more residential properties on the market for the amount of demand we are experiencing.

It appears that distressed properties are gradually disappearing and will be a less significant source of inventory in the future.  As prices continue to rise, more inventory can come from the resale market, but the biggest source of near-term supply is going to come from new construction.

If you are a buyer and you find a property that appeals to you, act quickly.  If you delay, you may lose an opportunity to buy now and get a better price than you will be able to in the future. If you are thinking of selling, put your property on the market You may be surprised by the price you can get. And then take advantage of the low interest rates to own the home of your dreams.
