How is the real estate market in Williamsburg Virginia ? August 2015

When looking at sales statistics for any market you really need to drill down into the specific price range to gain an in depth understanding of what is happening. As you can see in the chart below depending on the price range closed sales, number of homes on the market and pending sales are drastically different within the various price bands. These number reflect sales in the 23188, 23188 and 23168 zip codes which cover the areas of City of Williamsburg, James City County, Upper York County and the Toano areas. How is the real estate market in Williamsburg Virginia ? August 2015

Does it seem like there aren’t many homes on the market ? That is a result of a dearth of listings. The number of homes on the market is down almost 30% over last year in the $200-$250k price range and between 9% and 160% in the $250k to $600k price ranges.  As a result of low inventory overall sales are down slightly (3%) from last year. But sales in the 350-400k range are up 30.8% and 50% in the $600k to $750k range.

Home sellers and buyers are basically on an  equal footing when supply equals demand. The magic number, many housing experts say, is six.

As in, "it’ll take six months to sell all the homes now on the market at the current pace of sales."

In Williamsburg we are basically there in the under $400k market. Above that we still have a ways to go with inventories ranging from 10 months of supply in the $500-$600k range and as high as 22 months in the $750k + price range.

One last note I am happy to report. Although sales for the year are down slightly in the overall Williamsburg VA real estate market our company ( Liz Moore and Associates) continues to lead the market in sales. Our companies sales are up 38% over last year. We lead the area in sales and sell one in six homes in the market.
