In the 53 metro areas surveyed, total sales were up 4.5% over January 2016, which was previously the January with the most sales. The Median Sales Price of $208,500 was up 4.3% and marked the 10th consecutive month of year-over-year price increases.
The new January low of 66 Days on Market underscores the fact that inventory has declined year-over-year for 99 consecutive months dating back to October 2008.
“January may have set the tone for the coming home-buying season with homes selling faster and at higher prices,” said Dave Liniger, RE/MAX CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder. “Home-buyer demand is strong, and not enough sellers are listing to keep up with the demand, despite rising prices. At any rate, the beginning of 2017 continued the strong pace of 2016.”
