Home sales were down about 25% from this time last year. This is not at all surprising, given the continuing COVID-19 situation and tighter housing inventory. Only 651 homes (condo and single family) sold in Dane County the past month, compared to 871 homes in the same categories last year.
Inventory has hovered around the 2 month mark, and we are still in what is considered a “seller’s market”. Inventory for May 2019 was 2 months of supply, while this past month saw inventory levels of 2.39 months of supply.
The average sold price of single family and condo homes in Dane County was $343,303 last month. This is a 4.17% increase over the average sold price during this time last year, which was $329,551.
Interest rates have taken a downward dive, thanks to the current pandemic. This affects affordability positively, meaning buyers could have more room in their budget, which can help in a competitive market.
