Edmond Real Estate Market Update September 2016

How’s the Edmond Real Estate Market?

Last month the real estate market was quiet during the State Fair (it happens every year). But that didn’t affect the numbers too much. We’re starting October with 1263 active listings, about 20 less than we started with in September. The number of homes listed (358) remains lower than the total contracts accepted and transactions closed (555). If these conditions remain the same and no more homes were to come on the market in Edmond, it would take about five and a half months to sell through the current inventory. That means we are in a balanced market (a balanced market’s absorption rate is typically between 5 – 7 months).
