Share this:

YTD Median - November 2013The number of houses sold in November dropped considerably. November’s 454 sales were down 15.5 percent month-over-month, and off 13.5 percent year-over-year.

The median sales price in November did not follow the same decline however. November’s median sales price jumped back to $224,700, just barely missing this year’s high of 224,950 set in June. November’s median sales price was up 4.5 percent month-over-month, and up 24.1 percent year-over-year.

November’s median sold price per square foot (PPSF) came in at $126.33/sq.ft. — a 0.4 percent month-over-month increase, and an increase of 26.7 percent year-over-year.

November’s median days on market (DOM) climbed to 72 days — an increase of nine days over October’s 63 DOM, but still well below the 105 median DOM seen this time a year ago.

Inventory fell to 974 units available for sale — a drop of 7.4 percent from October’s 1,052 available units. The Reno-Sparks housing market’s current months supply of inventory (MSI) remains at two months — still in “seller’s market” territory.

For the sixth consecutive month pending sales continue to slide — down 4.3 percent month-over-month and down 28.9 percent year-over-year.

November sales by type break out as follows:

  • REO sales: 6% – up from October’s 4%
  • Short sales: 17% – up from October’s 16%
  • Equity sales: 74% – dow from October’s 78%

The proportion of distressed sales rose in November likely due to the uncertainty of whether or not The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act will be extended beyond December 31, 2013.
