The report also stated that inventory of single-family homes and condos available for sale at the end of August rose to 8,228, an increase of 7.65 percent from July and 11.8 percent higher than August 2017. Normally, the inventory barely drops between the two months and the changeset a record.

According to Steve Danyliw, chairman of the DMAR Market Trends Committee, said in August the market saw available homes for sale increase to the highest level in four years, giving buyers more homes to choose from.

Other report highlights include:

  • Single-family home sales in August dropped 7.46 percent from July, and are down 9.75 percent from the same month a year ago.

  • Condo sales dropped 5 percent for the month and are down 15.6 percent from August 2017.

  • The median price of a single-family home sold in August was $445,000, down 1.1 percent from July and up 8.54 percent from a year ago.

  • The median condo price was $299,000, up 0.89 percent from July and 9.05 percent from August 2017.

  • The number of days it took to sell a condo rose to 20 in August, up from 18 in July, while the number of days a single-family home took to sell rose to 23 from 21. While higher, both still reflect a fast pace of sales.
