Spring has been great for the western suburbs! Average sales YTD are up considerably in all three western suburbs. As house prices struggle to remain close to par compared to last year, we are seeing a decline in months of inventory. As months of inventory continue to drop closer to a balanced market - which is anywhere from 3-6 months of inventory - we should see average sale prices start to level out closer to 2015 numbers.

Number of sales have soared in comparison to 2015, however the number of active listings are declining to numbers that we were seeing in 2011 - which was the tail end of the highway 7 expansion. I do anticipate we will come to a more balanced market, however that may take a little more time.

Average days on market continue to be over 2 months, the month of May ended with an average of 72 days - down considerably from 84 & 88 the past two months. To ensure your home has the best chance of selling quickly, always call your trusted real estate professional.
