Real Estate Market Trends in the Poconos - January 2015

Pocono Real Estate Market Report (Monroe County) - January 2015

 

Here’s a look at the Pocono Real Estate Market Report for January 2015.

It’s a great time for Investors with the foreclosure rate remaining high.

Done right, redone homes can provide income potential for years.

 

pocono real estate market report - january 2015

 

JANUARY AVERAGE SOLD PRICE OF HOMES IN MONROE COUNTY:

$119,669 versus $131,058 for Jan. 2014, down 8.60%

 

THE NUMBER OF HOMES SOLD FOR JANUARY IN MONROE COUNTY:

149 homes versus 145 for Jan. 2014, up 2.8%

 

YEAR TO DATE figures will be the same as the monthly above.

 

The Foreclosure rate of homes sold in January was 49.6% - Holy Cow!

 

Other important items to review when looking at the Pocono Real Estate Market Report are:

 

  1. The Number of Active listings rose 3.7% to 2415 homes.

 

  1. The Absorption rate dropped to 10 months.

 

  1. The Sale to List Price ratio was approximately 93.5% where we would like to see at least 97%

 

  1. The Average Days on the Market of the homes that sold dropped to 143 days.

 

5. The Number of Pending homes is 229, UP 34.7% from 170 for January 2014.

 

The Absorption rate shows that we continue to be in a very strong Buyers Market.

A balanced market would have an Absorption rate of around 6 months.

 

To sell your home in the Poconos in such a strong Buyers Market you must be priced to compete, which means the same as your competition or better yet, lower than your competition.
