Here’s a quick look at the average zip prices around the center of town.
Conventional is dominating the market in volume of sales month to date, accounting for 46% of sales. Here is the distribution of those sales (and cash, VA and FHA) across the market for the month in $50K incremements.
Here are the top 10 subareas month to date. Meridian Ranch continues its reign at the top!
Here’s how to read this chart:
Meridian Ranch has 29 sales month to date at an average closed price of $515K, a median of $512K, an average closed to list price of 103.72% (selling for 3.72% above list price), an average of 6.17 days on the market, a median of 4 days on the market, an average seller’s concessions of $244 and a median seller’s concessions of $0.
Seller’s concessions are often referred to as closing costs. I dislike this reference because it lends itself to confusion; I like the more accurate description of “seller’s contribution (concession) to the buyer’s closing costs
Cash has the (significant) advantage of no appraisal but does it command the discount many feel it does? Let’s look at the data.
Below is a breakout of the purchase types of the sales YTD in the PPAR region. You can see there have been app 9,856 sales, 1646 of which have been cash. These on the average are paying 3.66% above list price. Contrast that with the 3.87% for conventional, 3.84% for FHA and 3.42% for VA and it’s immediately apparent that cash isn’t currently commanding the discount it has a reputation for.
