In November, the Sisters residential real estate market continued to tighten. Thanks to another reduction in listings combined with double-digit sales, the inventory is now below a 10-month supply for both Single Family Residential (SFR) listings and Residential with Acreage (RW) listings –- specifically, a 9.8-month and 8.6-month supply, respectively.
That’s good news for sellers, who have much less competition than they did this summer. But it may present a challenge for buyers –- especially those looking for a bargain (there are only eight Active SFR listings below $200,000 and three RW listings below $200,000).
Like last month, sales activity of RW listings was more active on the higher end of the price scale -– but even more so. This time, five of the six closed sales were above $300,000 and included a million-dollar sale (actually, $1.5 million). SFR sales, however, were focused on the lower end of the price scale, with three of the six closed sales under $250,000 and none over $450,000.
