Happy New Year! Hard to believe that we’re already a decade into this century.
It’s been well-established that 2009 was a difficult year for the economy, and the Rochester area real estate market was no exception with lower volumes, long market times, and decreased prices. On a positive note, the downward shift was less than half of that experienced in the previous year and average market time dropped nearly a week to reach an average of four months.
Homes are still selling, particularly those that are priced appropriately with respect to the adjusted market. Across the market, shorter market times are associated with more accurately priced homes. Although December had lower sales than a year earlier, the fourth quarter showed signs of encouragement with a 14% increase in the number of homes going under contract.
