Monroe NY Real Estate Results – March 2019
The Monroe, NY real estate results are available for March 2019. The number of monthly sales, available inventory, and sales prices all increased.
Following is an overview of the March 2019 Monroe NY results.
In the month of March 2019, there were 16 single family home sales, which was a slight increase over February (14%). There are 37 homes currently under contract with more than half going under contract prior to March. Those sales results should start showing up in April.
In terms of inventory, at the end of February 2019 there were 75 homes on the market while at the end of March there were 93, an increase of 24%. At this time last year, there were 82 homes on the market, so the Spring market seems to be starting a little earlier in 2019. Also of interest, the current number of active listings represents about four and a half months of inventory. Last month Monroe had about four months of inventory available. That means that while the market is still a seller’s market, it is on the way to being balanced as it was for most of 2018.
Median Sales Prices
The median sales price for March 2019 was $316,500, a 2% increase over February 2019. In this area, any months with median prices over $300K indicate a healthy market.
