Wasilla Real Estate News, Stats From June 7-13, 2010

Wasilla Real Estate News presents the real estate statistics for the week of June 7-13. These are the statistics for residential property in the whole Mat-Su borough.

Well, we went over 900 homes on the market this week. The numbers have been steadily climbing and probably will be continuing to climb during the summer months.

There were 63 new listings that hit the market this week. Twenty four closings looks fairly healthy until you devide that number into the number of listings and realize that even at 24 closings a week, we have more than 9 months of inventory on the market. Still, we are a lot better off than the hurting real estate markets in the lower 48 where they have two years and more of inventory in a lot of places.

Average Price Median Price DOM
New 63 $281,552 $259,000 .
Total Active 900 $285,460 $245,000 125
Pending 32 $214,739 $210,000 88
Closed 24 $208,515 $212,500 98

Below are the statistics from the second week in June 2009 for a comparison. Note how everything is so similar, except for the closing data. We have twice the amount of closings for this past week than we had last year. We are still living off the housing stimulus. The properties purchased with the tax rebate needed to go into contract by the end of April and close by the end of June. I have one of those closing this week myself.
