Financing use, median prices and 2,000 SF or more
Median price of new listings of single family homes this week is $345,000, last week $375,000.
Closed this week median price is $341,000, last week $344,000.
Conventional financing was used to close 73 single family homes this week at a median price of $387,000, last week 113 homes at median price of $381,000.
Cash was used to close 15 homes this week at a median price of $284,500, last week 23 at a median price of $281,615.
FHA financing was used to close 16 homes this week at a median price of $262,500, last week 22 homes at a median price of $306,000.
VA financing was used to close 3 single family homes this week at median price of $290,000, last week 6 homes at median price of $301,500.
The type of financing you use became a big deal in 2021. There were so many multiple offer situations seller’s had a choice of which offer to accept, and of course, cash always came first. Not everyone has cash to purchase so Conventional was their next choice. It was hard for buyer’s to understand this at first. We would tell them to also get pre approved for Conventional when they would show us that they were pre approved for FHA.
58 single family homes closed that were 2,000 square feet or more this week at a median price of $422,495, last week 98 closed at median price of $426,000. The minimum price that closed this week was $152,000, last week it was $85,000.
More square feet became very important after the pandemic hit. So many people were working from home and needed a home office or just extra space in general.
