June, 2014 – SWMI House Sales Behind From Last Year – Selling Prices Up
ST. JOSEPH, MI – "Looking month-to-month comparing 2014 to 2013, the housing units sold are trailing behind last year's by about one month because of the hard winter. In 2013 unit sales started to trend up in February and this year the trend up started in March. At the end of the first half of the year, our housing unit sales were down 5 percent and the total dollar volume was close to even with last year. This lead to the year-to-date average selling price to be up 6 percent and 9 percent for the median selling price," stated Gary Walter, EVP, of the Southwestern Michigan Association of REALTORS®, Inc.
May, 2014 – SWMI May House Sales Down Selling Prices Up
ST. JOSEPH, MI – "The housing market in Southwestern Michigan at the end of May has not quite caught up to where it was a year ago. Many factors could be involved including the brutal winter weather, changes in time to close transactions, and lower inventory levels. Bottom line is fewer houses were sold. However, both buyers and sellers benefited during May. Sellers saw a significant increase in average and median selling prices. Buyers had an increasing selection of homes to choose from and the lowest mortgage rate since June of last year," stated Gary Walter, EVP, of the Southwestern Michigan Association of REALTORS®, Inc.
