72 homes went under contract. The average list price was $629,728. The median list price is $500,000. Average days on market 41, median days on market 9.

There were 64 new listings. The average list price was $823,496. The median list price of $562,450. 29 of those are already under contract or off of the market, 35 are still active. 31% were under contract within the first 7 days.

Market Pace

To keep you up to date with the pace of the market, going back to the previous week ending July 11th, there were 73 new listings, 39 of which are now under contract, or off of the market. 34 are still active. 34% were under contract within the first 7 days. 

Going back two weeks to the week ending July 4th, out of 55 new listings 32 are under contract, sold, or off of the market. 23 are still active. 31% were under contract within the first 7 days.

Going back three weeks to the week ending June 27th, out of 61 new listings 37 are under contract, sold, or off of the market. 24 are still active. 36% were under contract within the first 7 days.

Is It Still A Sellers Market?

About a month ago I started tracking the speed in which homes were going under contract by week. The number of homes going under contract during week one has been as high as 65% for the week ending March 21st, and as low as 23% for the week ending June 13th. The yearly average is 42%. 

Again, the week ending July 18th is 31%. That still indicates a very fast-moving, sellers, market. Last year at this time that figure was 21%, two years ago, the week ending July 21st, 2019, it was 12%.
