August median sales price, units sold, DOM, DTC and inventory

August 2016 median price graphThe median home sales price in Reno and Sparks, Nevada receded sharply in August. August’s median sales price came in at $310,000 — a 2.8 percent decrease from July’s median sales price of $319,000.

Year-over-year August’s median sales price is up 6.9 percent over August 2015’s median of $290,000.

August’s median sold price per square foot (ppsf) also decreased; to $172.37/sq.ft. — a 0.7 percent decrease from July’s $173.65/sq.ft. Year-over-year the median sold ppsf is up 7.1 percent.

The number of houses sold in August also dropped; to 574 units sold. That total represents a 3.5 percent decrease from the 595 houses sold in July. Year-over-year, however, August’s total is up 9.3 percent from the 525 houses sold in August 2015.

August’s median days on market (DOM) increased by two more days — coming in at 66 DOM. DOM has been slowly trending upwards over the past few months.

August’s median days to contract (DTC) metric [the number of days that a property was listed on the MLS before going into contract (e.g. pending)] came in at 5 days — the same number of days observed in July.

Available inventory is holding relatively steady. Currently 1,440 houses are listed and available for sale. Compare that number to the 1,434 houses available this time last month.

Similarly, pending home sales are also holding steady. Currently, there are 1,031 houses pending sale. Compare that July’s 1,036 pending sales this time last month.

August sales by type break out as follows:

  • REO sales: 2% – unchanged from July’s 2%
  • Short sales: 3% – unchanged from July’s 3%
  • Equity sales: 93% – unchanged from July’s 93%

August sales by price band break out as follows in the table below…

sales price ($000’s) units sold cumulative % of sales
0 – 99 3 0.5%
100 – 199 37 7.5%
200 – 299 230 47.0%
300 – 399 186 79.4%
400 – 499 47 87.6%
500 – 599 25 92.0%
600 – 699 13 94.3%
700 – 799 11 96.2%
800 – 899 1 96.3%
900 – 999 8 97.7%
1M+ 13 100%
total 574

A whopping 13 $1M+ homes sold in August. To put that number in perspective, through July 44 $1M+ properties had been sold since the 1st of the year — or a little over 6 on average per month. August’s number more than doubled that average.

August’s median sold price for houses and condos combined was $289,000 — a 3.3 percent one-month decrease from July’s median sold price of $299,000 for combined sales of houses and condos.

Ticor Title’s Washoe County Foreclosure Statistics for July 2016

The foreclosure statistics below are provided by Ticor Title Company.

Ticor Washoe County Foreclosure July 2016 Trend Line bar

Commentary accompanying the report:

As you can see we have a flattening and almost decline in Foreclosure Activity. Why? Combination of many things. Property values are increasing and many homeowners are seeing equity in their homes compared to previous years. SB321 (Homeowners Bill of Rights) is still in affect creating homeowners to do foreclosure mediation and foreclosure alternatives which is causing delays on the Notices of Default. Short sales are still declining month over month according to NNRMLS stats on SFR stick built properties
