Price Sold = $612,296
SFH average days on market = 56
Price changes last week = 203
Sales volumes jumped last week. If the next three days play out similar, it won't be impossible to surpass 350 for the month, perhaps even hit 375. Regardless, this number can only be called disastrous as it is less than 50% of last year's numbers and still marks a 20-year-low for September sales volumes.
Due to the low sales volumes, average price reporting is going to be extremely volatile. In August, $586,000 was likely reported too much as a "drastic drop" without the corresponding explanation "lack of high end sales" skewing the average down. In September there have been considerably more expensive homes selling dragging the average back up - somewhere near $610K. The truth likely lies somewhere in between.
