As predicted in recent posts, last month was a very active month in terms of home sales here in Solon. Officially, there were 22 total homes that sold in November in Solon at an average sales price of $244,427. This is almost the same exact average sales price as September and October. Last November saw only 11 sales at an average price of $248,364. These Solon home statistics indicate a trend of lower and moderate priced homes selling and Solon luxury homes, those priced above $500,000, continuing to linger on the market.


Total sales year to date are almost exactly the same as this time last year. In fact, we need only 18 sales in December to exceed last years’ figures. While that doesn’t sound like much, having more sales this year than 2008 may be the sign buyers are waiting for to see that the housing market may have indeed bottomed out.

Average sales price, however, has decreased from 2008. Year to date, the average sales price of a home in Solon is $292,626. Last year at this time saw the average sales price at $341,572.

Does this mean that homes in Solon have depreciated over 10%? Not necessarily. The average sales price is an indication of more lower priced homes being sold, especially many that are bank owned or distressed in some way. This, coupled with the lack of luxury home sales, has brought the average sales price down in 2009.

For those looking to buy a home in Solon, it is not accurate to assume that home prices have decreased across the board. The sale of a bank owned home cannot be compared to that of a well maintained home, so the actual Solon home statistics can be a little misleading.  Nice homes in many developments have been able to maintain their values for the most part over the last year. Sure, the market is still soft, but in many price points, updated and well-maintained homes priced fairly will still be able to sell for 94-96% of their list price. 

The one area of concern is the market of Solon luxury homes as they are simply not selling like in previous years. In fact, 2008 saw 48 luxury home sales in Solon whereas there have been only 31 so far in 2009. In addition, 11 of the sales this year, over 35%,  have involved distressed properties. Also, there were 23 luxury home sales in Solon in 2008 over $650,000. This year, we have seen only 7 homes sell for over $650,000.
