A comparatively lower MSI is more beneficial for sellers while a higher MSI is better for buyers. The September 2017 MSI of 2.6 months was at its lowest level compared with September of 2016 and 2015.

Market Time

The average Days On Market (DOM) shows how many days the average property is on the market before it sells. An upward trend in DOM tends to indicate a move towards more of a buyer’s market, a downward trend a move towards more of a seller’s market. The DOM for September was 37, equal to 37 days last month and down from 43 days in September of last year. The September 2017 DOM was at its lowest level compared with September of 2016 and 2015.

Selling Price Per Square Foot

The selling price per square foot is a great indicator for the direction of property values. Since median sales price and average sales price can be impacted by the ‘mix’ of high or low end properties in the market, the selling price per square foot is a more normalized indicator on the direction of property values. The September 2017 selling price per square foot of $485 was up 0.4% from $483 last month and up 5.7% from $459 in September of last year.

Selling Price vs Listing Price

The selling price vs listing price reveals the average amount that sellers are agreeing to come down from their list price. The lower the ratio is below 100% the more of a buyer’s market exists, a ratio at or above 100% indicates more of a seller’s market. The September 2017 selling price vs list price of 99.2% was down from 99.6% last month and up from 98.8% in September of last year.

Inventory / New Listings / Sales

This last view of the market combines monthly inventory of properties for sale along with new listings and sales. The graph shows the basic annual seasonality of the market as well as the relationship between these items. The number of new listings in September 2017 was 4104, down -4.1% from 4,278 last month and down -8.5% from 4,484 in September of last year.
