Pepper Pike Ohio Real Estate: First Quarter Market Report 2009

The first quarter is officially over and the Pepper Pike real estate market fared pretty well during what is considered to be the slowest quarter of the year.

Officially, 13 homes sold during the first three months of 2009 compared to 12 during the first quarter of 2008.  

Here is how the first quarter of 2009 compares with the same time period from 2008 here in Pepper Pike:

Year # Of Sold Homes Ave. Sale Price Ave. Market Time
2009 13 $439,591 135  
2008 12 $408,493 150  

SUMMARY

The fact that more homes sold in the first quarter of 2009 than during the same time period last year is a good sign for real estate in Pepper Pike. Additionally, the average sales price is up from last year and market time is down.

Moving forward, the second quarter should be off to a good start. There are currently 14 homes under contract, many occurring within the last 30 days. This may be a sign of increased activity. Also, the new $8000 first time buyer tax credit could have a positive impact on home sales in a higher-end suburb like Pepper Pike. First-time buyers will be more likely to buy in areas like Lyndhurst, University Heights and other more affordable areas, allowing those sellers to move up and buy homes in upscale areas like Pepper Pike.
