During April of 2011 total sales of existing condos, townhomes and detached homes continued the recent upward trend posting a 2.6% increase in detached homes and a 5.1% increase in attached (condos, and townhomes) single family properties.
When comparing those figures with those of April of last year, we see again a 6.1% increase in detached homes and a small 1.9% increase in condos and townhome closings. Median sale prices are still slightly lower from those of April of last year; detached homes at $375,000 and condos and townhomes steady at $210,000.
The number of active listings did not significantly changed in April, however the number of pending and contingent listings are up again for the third month in a row. Just like last month these pending listings should reflect as sold listings in the month of May.
While median prices continue to do the heavy lifting for relative stability, favorable interest rates, currently in the mid 4%, let us know that home ownership still makes a sound financial sense for a long term investment.
As a reminder, the above numbers represent condos and detached homes that closed escrow during the month of April 2011 and have actually been taken of the market during February or March 2011.
