Selling Price Per Square Foot
The selling price per square foot is a great indicator for the direction of property values. Since median sales price and average sales price can be impacted by the 'mix' of high or low end properties in the market, the selling price per square foot is a more normalized indicator on the direction of property values. The December 2013 selling price per square foot of $598 was up 12.2% from $533 last month and up 14.3% from $523 in December of last year.
Selling Price vs Listing Price
The selling price vs listing price reveals the average amount that sellers are agreeing to come down from their list price. The lower the ratio is below 100% the more of a buyer's market exists, a ratio at or above 100% indicates more of a seller's market. The December 2013 selling price vs list price of 97.4% was up from 95.6% last month and down from 97.5% in December of last year.
