Here is the monthly Eldorado Real Estate Report covering the last six months from April through September 2017. Inventory of available properties continues to increase slowly and the rate of sales continues to be busy for properties properly prepared for sale and priced right. Our neighborhood continues to be popular with folks who appreciate the land, views, biking, hiking and the pool, parks and shopping. The way Days on Market is calculated has changed so it looks drastically shorter than it used to. The Santa Fe MLS now stops counting when a home goes under contract.
13 Homes Under Contract
– $198 was the average price per square foot in September. Remember this number depends on a wide range of factors – the size of the house, age, quality of the finishes, views, heating, construction, etc. The larger the house, the lower the price per square foot. The smaller the house, the higher the price per square foot. This average has ranged from $198 – $225 in the last six months. Some properties sell for as low as $115 and as high as $294.
****40 were the average days on the market last month. *** The Santa Fe MLS has changed the way Days on the Market are reported. No longer are the days counted in which a property is under contract. Which could be 14-65 days typically. Days on the market are stopped the day a seller accepts an offer.
– 98% is the sales price vs. listing price for September. This is the listing price when the property went under contract, not the original listing price, which may have been higher. This has ranged from 97% – 98% for the last six months. The sooner a property goes under contract, the closer to the listing price the seller is likely to receive.
– 431K was the average listing price last month. The average sales price was 373K.
– 3.1 months of inventory – which means the length of time it would take to sell all the homes listed in Eldorado at the current rate of sales. Eight months indicates a healthy real estate market. Eldorado remains a popular and in-demand neighborhood.
