Angel Fire has done it again! The first half of 2018 presents a 22% increase in the number of home sales over the same time last year. This increased demand is coupled with an even larger increase in dollar volume (34%). As we stated in our January 2018 Market Report, Angel Fire is shifting from a Buyers Market to a Balanced Market.
You may recall, the 2016 price correction resulted in a 48% increase in home sales over 2015. This was followed by a 15% increase in homes sales in 2017 over 2016, resulting in segments of the market reaching a Balanced Market for the first time since the recession. Another noteworthy result of this shift is the reduction in Days-On-Market (DOM) from 523, to 429, to 234 in 2016, 2017 and 2018 (1st half) respectively.
<$500K prices hit a Balanced Market in January 2018
First to reach a balanced market, the <$500K price range is the most active price point in Angel Fire. Compared to this time last year there has been a 17% increase in demand and an 8% decrease in supply. The DOM has seen a 44% decline resulting in an average of 212 Days-On-Market. We expect this segment to maintain a balanced market throughout the year with potential to lean into a Seller’s market in 2019 depending on several economic factors both locally and nationally. We will likely see closer list-to-sell price ratios and multiple offer situations in the lower price ranges during the remainder of this year.
$500K – $1M average days on market decreases 60%
Accounting for only 13% of the entire market, the $500K – $1M price range is making a splash this year. Sales are up 75% and inventory is up 15%. The DOM is down 60% resulting in an average days on market of 380. This is quite the improvement over last year. However, it remains a Buyers market as the increase in sales is still catching up to the oversupply of inventory.
$1M+ remains the same as this time last year
No activity in the over $1M range so far this year. The three homes in this segment that sold in 2017 occured in the 2nd half of the year and those prices ranged from $1.1M to $2.3M. There are some amazing luxury homes on the market and we expect to see new owners in them before the year end.
