Monday Market Memo on a Thursday

These are the statistics for Palmer, Wasilla and the rest of the Mat-Su Borough for April 21-27, 2009. I have had some computer problems so this memo is late.

Fifty Three new listings and thirty three pendings for the week prove that the real estate market is heating up along with every thing else this spring. I even turned my air condition on for the first time yesterday.


Average Price Median Price DOM
New 53 $309,959 $220,000 .
Total Active 801 $285,315 $239,000 139
Pending 33 $217,354 $209,900 82
Closed 15 $203,593 $190,000 78

Our total inventory passed the 800 mark for the first time this year. It will probably remain in that area until fall.

There was one listing over $2 million that hit the market this week. That tended to skew up the averages but it didn’t change the median range at all.

Note that the closed sales still remain around the $2K mark. That is the bullse ye of the current market.

Give me a call at 232-7900 if you have any specific questions about today’s real estate market.
