On face value, it would seem as though the real estate market in Solon has improved since last year. After all, we have had more sales, a higher average sales price and lower average days on market than at the same time last year.

For the sub $500,000 market, this would hold true. With the exception of the $200,000-$300,000 price point, which broke a record last year, all other price points under $500,000 are doing better this year.  However, this is not the case for the luxury market.

As someone who specializes in Solon luxury homes, I can attest that the luxury market has slowed considerably from last year. The numbers above reflect that with a lower number of sales, especially in the $500,000-$700,000 price points.

Luxury home buyers are out there looking but they aren’t buying. Many don’t necessarily need a high-end home, but would certainly buy if the conditions were right.

The mentality with many of the luxury home buyers is they demand value or a home that provides a huge wow factor. The numbers reflect they aren’t getting what they want.

With the peak of the summer market behind us, it will be interesting to see what transpires in the fall.
