The month included improved sales prices, lower number of sales and fewer distressed properties. Sales VolumeTwelve homes closed in the month of April. That's the lowest number of sales in a month since early in 2016. That being said, the results are not indicative of a trend, as there have already been six sales during the first five days of May. So the recent trend of high sales volume is still underway. In addition, there are currently only 102 homes available for sale, which is ~30% lower than the same time last year.Median Sales PricesApril 2017 sales price results showed improvement over the past month and the same time last year.

The Monroe, NY real estate results are now available for the March 2017 period. March was an unusual month in several respects as follows.Sales VolumeNineteen homes closed in the month. That volume was 46% higher than February, and was 36% higher than March of 2016. In terms of overall inventory, available single family homes in Monroe NY now number 98. That is an increase of 8 over the end of February. Even though inventory is increasing, levels still remain low in terms of a "typical" number of available houses in the area.Median Sales PricesMarch sales price results were interesting for several reasons. First, the median price for March 2017 was $220K. This was a drop of 25% over the previous month and 16% less than the same time last year. This was probably primarily due to the huge...

The Monroe, NY real estate results are now available for the January 2017 period.The median sales price in Monroe NY during January 2017 was $230K, a 3% increase over the same time period last year, and significantly lower than the previous month. January sales included a foreclosure, short sale, a property in need of rehab and a very small "as is" ranch house. The highest priced home to sell was a four bedroom, two and a half bath colonial in Whitman Place which sold for $495K. In between were two cape cod style homes, a handful of bilevel/raised ranches, and another colonial. In general, cape cod and ranch homes often bring in lower prices than colonials, so the median price for the month is not too surprising when reviewing the actual homes sold.Regarding sales volume, sales volume r...
