AUGUST 2008 HOME SALES
AUGUST 2007 HOME SALES
MARKET TREND ANALYSIS:
This was the best month of the year for home sellers in the Plainview - Old Bethpage School District. Although the numbers are not as strong as 2007, they are certainly better than what many would expect from the media reports on the housing market. There were more closings this month than new homes coming on the market, which means that inventory is on the decline. Aside from having the most closings for the year, the prices were the highest, and the average days on market was the lowest. The ratio of sold price to list price remained strong as well.
While the numbers are not as strong as 2007, they are the best that they have been for 2008. The fact that inventory is being absorbed faster than it is being replaced shows strength in the market. Homebuyers looking to move into the area should take into account that there are positive signs going on, and that waiting for price drops or making very low offers may end up costing you the home that you wanted. Home sellers still need to realize that the homebuyer mentality is still that of a buyer's market, so these positive signs must be put into perspective.
