Harford County Real Estate Market Update April 2018

It's that time of month again as the Harford County Real Estate market stats have been released!! Spring has sprung and the market is in full bloom!! The average sales price of a home in March was $278,781, up 12.09% from the same time in 2017. Low inventory is creating a feeding frenzy of buyers in this market, with homes being sold via bidding war. In March, 300 homes sold throughout the County, up only .67% from the same time last year, which would be higher if supply were higher to match up with demand. Only 668 homes are active on the market, down almost 28% from last year! The buyers are out in force, and there is just not enough for them to pick from right now. This is leading to only 2.2 months of inventory on the market, where a healthy market is considered 5-7 months. This means if a single house didn't list moving forward, we would run out of homes to sell in 2.2 months!
