July 2019 Real Estate Market Update – Genesee County

What’s going on guys? Brandon Gentile, Legacy Group Real Estate
Team. We have your Genesee County Market Update
for July 2019. So let’s jump right into this. I always prefaced every single video with
a couple of things too. We have three years of data that we can see
the trend. You want to be able to see the pattern to
see what exactly is going on. And then we have the month previous because
all the data is now in. We can give you exactly what’s going on and
show you what the trend is. So that way you can make the best decisions
for you and your family. So let’s jump right into this thing. Days on market We had 42 days on market two years ago, 36
days on the market last year and 38 days this past July. Remember, this is countywide data. So take it with a grain of salt. Active homes on the market Four hundred seventy-eight homes, 695 last
year, and then 925 this year. So this is one day actually. So when the data was taken, this was a one-off
basically. So take that with a grain of salt as well. We’ll see a little bit more how it plays out
here going forward. Months of inventory So at the rate that homes are sold, how long
would it take every last home to sell if no new homes came on the market? To give you a little perspective – one to
three months is a seller’s market. Four to six is a balanced market and then
seven plus is a buyer’s market. As you can see, really heavy sellers market
trending a little bit towards a balanced market, but still a heavy as at 1.8 actually. So it’s still a heavy sellers’ market and
the price is increasing. Obviously you’re gonna see down here in a
second. So everything’s trending still in that seller’s
market direction. New homes in the market This was the amount of new active homes that
came onto the market in that month. This is a month-wide number – 793 two years
ago, 772 last year and then 718 this past July. You can see the trend downward actually fewer
homes over the last couple of July’s that were active and listed on the market. Not exactly what we want to see. We want to see some of these numbers kind
of coming back up again a little bit like this, but that’s just kind of the market we’re
in. We’re very tight in inventory. Price per square foot This is countywide. Again, remember if you want a real appraisal
in your home, you need to get an appraiser, you need to get a real estate professional,
someone in our team to come look at your home and actually walk through it, look at the
neighborhood you’re in. This is countywide data. And if you multiply this number by your square
footage, it gives you about what your home is worth probably better than Zillow and all
that garbage out there. So do that quick math. You get about the ballpark of what your home
worth. Price per square foot was $96 a square foot
two years ago, $98 last year and $102 this year. So again, the trend going upward, prices going
up, inventory down, just simple supply and demand. Sold This is the buyers’ stat we have and this
is the number of closed transactions, people at the closing table closing at homes. Six hundred forty-seven 2 years ago, 520 last
year and 508. So again, a drop. We’ve had lower inventory last few months,
we’ve had lower closing subsequently obviously. Right? So again, these are trends that we’ve seen
a couple of days on market go up and a couple of this kind of go up a little bit, but most
of these are trending down still. Less inventory, less time on the market, things
like that. So it’s just we still are in that sellers’
market and there’s really no signs of that slowing down. So I hope you guys appreciated this. Let me know if you have any questions, comments,
