Market Trends has released their report on the Birmingham real estate market for the month of August 2013.
The total dollar value of sales was up slightly – about 3% – versus last August, and the total number of houses sold was up about 1% versus last year.
The total amount of houses on the market available for sale is 10% lower than this time last year, which is good news if you are a seller.
For used homes, there is currently an 8 month supply of homes on the market (meaning at the current sales pace it would take 8 months to sell all of them, theoretically). This is 2 month’s better than last year at 10 months. Note this can vary by area — more desirable areas will have lower supply, and vice versa.
The average Days on Market, or days it takes to sell a house, was 126 for used homes. This means that if your house is priced right, it is moving in about 4 months.
All of these statistics reflect averages for the “conventional” means of selling houses to homeowners through a Realtor.
