Mar 2017
Low-Down

Heading into peak
season: Mar-Apr.
Sales activity rising
significantly...
think Trump trade:
Financial markets up.
Rates rising.
Inventory declining in
most desirable areas.
Market favors sellers
in West End and
Downtown Core,
but favors buyers
outside these areas
where greater 
opportunities exist.
Two tiered
pricing levels:
1) New-built
contemporary =
> greater demand
> premium prices;
2) Everything else =
 > more days on
market

< less demand 
> more negotiable
> better possible
discounts

> more seller

motivation.

During Recession,
there was little
new construction
creating a 4-5 yr
void in new product.
New product sales

now are raising 
the comparable avgs.
whch masks realtiy
for older home

for sale where

it's tougher.

 

See 4/13/17 WSJ, 
recent article

"High End Homes for Sale...
for Years..." 

 

And 2/23/17 WSJ
on 
luxury home sales,
"High-end home sellers

across the country are

offering discounts as

luxury market softens...

Buyers are very price

sensitive...If it’s not

priced right it’s going to
sit until the cows come
home...expensive

trophy estates have

generally become

challenging to sell

to today’s ...millennial

buyers....these behemoth

trophy properties… have

become very hard to sell

to the people who can

afford them.”
