COMMENTARY:

While last month wasn’t as good as June 2009, year-to-date figures suggest that this year is fairly even to last year in terms of actual number of sales. The good news is that the average sales price is slightly higher this year compared to last year. In addition, although not indicated above, the average market time to sell a home in Beachwood so far this year is 100 days compared to 137 days in 2009.

What does this mean? While we anticipated home sales to surge throughout the area in general due to the home buyer tax credit, which expired on June 30th, Beachwood was not an area greatly affected.  This is most likely due to the fact that first time buyers, who were the ones most likely taking advantage of the tax credit, were not as likely to buy in Beachwood. The first-time buyers were more likely buying in nearby inner-ring suburbs, where home prices are more affordable. 

While it appears the market has stabilized, we don’t anticipate seeing sales numbers that we saw during the boom years of 2003-2007 perhaps ever again. The expectations of home buyers and sellers in Beachwood may have to be redefined.

While interest rates are near historic lows, the economy is not totally recovered from the recession. Some economists believe we are still in recovery mode while others see rougher times ahead. In the end, the economy affects major buying decisions, such as housing, and until we see more signs of long-term growth, especially in the unemployment figures, the local housing market will continue to move along slowly.
