The days on market (DOM) increased by 5 days from last year. The average days on market in October 2016 was 76 compared to 71 DOM in October 2015. 

“Limited inventory in most metro areas in the state favors home sellers. There is still time to sell your home before the end of the year. Interested buyers are motivated by the slight interest rate increases and predictions that the underwriting process may become less stringent in the future,” stated IAR President Cindy Miller.  Read the Forbes article, How Trump’s Presidency Could Impact Real Estate for a national perspective written by NAR’s Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun.  

The information used to create the IAR October 2016 Housing Trends Report was current as of November 14, at 3:40 p.m. The information is subject to change due to the dynamic nature of the IAR’s housing statistics system, which is updated hourly based on information present in local participating MLS (multiple listing service) systems.
