Ann Arbor Real Estate in a Balanced Market

Ann Arbor Real Estate Market Statistics for May 2013

Inventory for Ann Arbor Real Estate increased by 8%, putting us in a balanced market for the first time since July of last year, with a 5.5 months supply of homes available. As sales continue to be very strong throughout the spring, home values are rising and many sellers are finding they are able to sell their homes when they previously could not. Compared with May 2012, sales are up by 10% showing there is still a strong buyer pool out there.  The under $500,000 market continues to be in a seller’s market, with the exception of the $300k-$400k range being balanced, as these homes are selling very quickly, especially if they are priced right and in great condition.

With the continued price increases in the Ann Arbor area, your home may be worth a lot more than you think!
