Concord NH Homes Market Activity Report November 2011
Concord NH homes are more affordable today and here is the proof. We are looking at Concord NH homes and condos sold between January 1 and October 31 for the last four years. 292 Concord NH homes and condos were sold in 2008 at the beginning of The Great Recession and fell off 18% to a low of 240 homes sold through 2010 even though the now expired Federal Home Buyer Tax Credit was in effect. This is interesting to note because the Tax Credit is gone and the number of homes sold this year is up almost 16% from last year.
Why Have More Concord NH Homes Sold This Year?
Whereas the average sales price has tumbled 18% from 2008 to 2011, it is easy to see why. Median sales price is said to be a better indicator of where the market is headed because the median price is the price where 50% of the sales are above this price and 50% are below so median sales price is not skewed by one large sale or one small sale. Median sales price has dipped 19% over the same time period again telling us why more homes have sold this year. Looking at the average days on market, we can see that those homes were sold about two weeks sooner too.
Now I've Let The Cat Out Of The Bag!
The more people that see this report, the more people will know that there are some great deals out there. Here is the real reason more Concord NH homes and condos have sold. Interest rates are at their lowest levels in decades and with a 1/4 of 1 percent rise in the interest rate, purchase power goes down about $8,000. First time buyers are the driving factor of this market and move up buyers are getting it too. Move up buyers are little more conservative but realize that what they are giving up in terms of selling their homes at a discount to first time buyers they can more than make up for in the upgraded or larger home. If the market is down 18-19%, what they give up in their sale can be far less than what they can save on a deal today.
