One statistic that we have been maintaining at The Market Bulletin is a measurement that we refer to as the “Home Sales Success Rate.” Currently, the one-year trend is at a two-year high! By dividing the total number of closed sales by the total number of new listings, over a specific time period, we can show a trend that gives a hint at how many homes (as a percentage of the total) are actually selling. We are more curious about the direction of this trend as opposed to its absolute value because we know it does not track the history of homes being sold against their specific listings. The graph above shows:
- 1 Year Trend: 48% of homes are selling
- 9 Month Trend: 50% of homes are selling.
- 6 Month Trend: 47% of homes are selling.
- 3 Month Trend: 38% of homes are selling.
