January Listings Report (2010)

You bet, it sure has been awhile since I posted a listings report... or any report for that matter. Have to say that I've been a bit busy to faithfully produce such reports, but at least I have continued to track the data. I've also decided to slim down the listing reports to some degree (basically won't be offering the previous months data in order to save me some time).

So what have you missed over the last couple of months?? In a nutshell... prices continue to slide (yet sellers still haven't totally figured that out) and sales activity has picked up the pace. Yep... pretty much like it was all of last calendar year.

I owe you a couple of other reports... I will be doing the January sales report later this month and in the next few days I'll probably get the annual report out.

So without further ado... the disclaimer...

Disclaimer... all data compiled for this report comes from the WARDEX Data Exchange and does not include any sales activity from outside that resource. All research is done only on single family homes and there is no inclusion of modular homes, commercial properties, or vacant land. The geographical area researched includes; all areas within the boundaries of the city of Kingman, north Kingman, the Hualapai Mountain area, and the Valle Vista subdivisions.

See you weren't really missing out on anything here... the only stat that jumps out at me is the fact that half of the new listings were of the foreclosed on variety. The largest such invasion by the banks by percentage since I've been keeping track. Human sellers, I guess, have tired.

And even though the inventory of active listings is down as compared to years past, it hasn't meant the end of the issues surrounding excess inventory... at least not yet.

And here it is just a slaughter by the banks. Banks control the clear majority of the action in this local real estate market. Basically... nothing to see here, move along now... move along.

The average price of a newly listed unit for sale was way down in January of 2010... lower than it has ever been according to the records I have kept and we should expect it to continue to be the case as long as banks are putting up half the new listings every month (banks really get the idea of competition and are definitely motivated to sell). It's just down to the question of how low can they go in regards to prices.

No promises, but I hope to get back on the horse (so to speak) and get these reports out on a once again consistent basis. Stay tuned.
