June Home Sales Dip, But Big Year Still Underway

July 15, 2019

Statistics from the Traverse Area Association of Realtors point toward a strong real estate market overall, though figures just for June show a slowing of sales for the five counties compared to years past. In the first two quarters of this year, there were 1,327 residential sales, compared with the 1,282 homes sold in the first two quarters of 2018. However, those figures still lag behind 2017 (1,403) and 2016 (1,446). But the $380,266,934 in sales volume this year tops all previous figures going back to at least 2014.
 
For the month of June alone, the 278 total homes sold is on a par with last year’s 281. Both trail 2017 and 2016 (329 and 342 respectively). Leelanau County most closely mirrored 2017 in both the number of sales and the sales volume, while the other four counties were up (Grand Traverse, Antrim) or down (Benzie, Kalkaska) in both homes sold and sales volume. Interestingly, every county showed a decrease in the number of days a home was on the market except Grand Traverse, which jumped from 76 in 2018 to 86 this year. Overall, both the average price and the median price were up, from $236,000 in both for June 2018 to $291,948 (average) and $255,000 (median) this past month, though again there was a disparity among the counties.
