Single family home sales slowed slightly during October as we saw 71 home sales compared to 74 for September. As expected foreclosure sales dipped as well claiming 59% of the sales for the month. Short sales accounted for 5% of sales while regular home sellers hung on and staked their claim to 35 % of the single family home sales for Bullhead City, Fort Mohave and Mohave Valley.
Prices dipped again with the average home sales price coming in at an all year low of $ 110,010. This is directly related to the fact that 78% of the market home sales were under the $150,000 price point. We did see two riverfront sales this month one at 1825 East Shore Villas which sold for $310,000 and 2895 which sold for $530,000. Both of these sales were regular home sellers.
One number to watch this next month is the pending or homes going under contract. Homes under contract fell to a year low of 153 down from 232 in September. Interest rates remain at historical lows. Did you happen to see the lender commercial advertising that interest rates had not been this low since “I like Ike,” President Eisenhower had been in office? I just had to include this link. Apparently interest rates and marketing and campaigns techniques have changed dramatically over the years. I found this ad to be refreshing and brought a giggle to me this morning.
