Oakland Twp Real Estate Market Report for December 2018

Next, let’s review the Oakland Twp Real Estate Market for December 2018.  Feel free to compare this to last month’s blog, “Oakland Twp Real Estate Market for November.”

We’ll start with the Homes for Sale in December in Oakland Twp. In 2016, there were 152 homes for sale and that number dropped by -5.9 percent in 2017, to having 143 homes for sale. In 2018, we saw a further drop of -20.3 percent with only 114 homes on the market. A significant decrease from 2016.

Next, we’ll look at the year over year averages of days on market. We’ll start with the average days on market for December in 2016, that number was 60 days and then it decreased to 53 average days on the market in 2017In 2018, however, the average days on market increased quite a bit to 72 days in 2018, which was a +35.8 percent increase from the previous year!

The next graph I like to explain as it isn’t always understandable to the average person looking at these statistics. We are going to look at the Supply of Homes for Sale. The Supply of Homes for Sale is the measure of how many months it would take for the current inventory of homes on the market to sell, given the current pace of home sales. For example, if there are 50 homes on the market and 10 homes selling each month, there is a 5 month supply of homes for sale. (definition supplied by Findwell.com)

If you look at the current graph below you will see that back in 2016, the Months Supply of Homes for Sale in Oakland Twp was 4.0 months.  In 2017, it increased to 4.5 months which was a +12.5 percent increase. In 2018, the Months Supply of Homes for Sale increased again to 4.8 months which was a +6.7 percent increase from 2017.
