Wasilla Real Estate Market Memo

Wasilla and Palmer Real Estate Statistics for the week of June 16-22, 2009

The inventory continues to grow while the real estate sales remain about the same. We have had a similar number of closings and pendings for several weeks now. But our inventory is higher.

That means that there are about the same amount of buyers out there now as there have been in the recent past, but there are more sellers. The buyers have more to choose from and the sellers have more to compete with.

Compared to last year at this same time, the market is almost unchanged. The inventory last June was just over 900 and the closed and pending sales were running pretty close to the average of this summer. The total days on market is higher this year and the sales prices are a lower but the activity is almost the same.
