The numbers of homes sold and the average price remained fairly steady in December, though the number of sales pending and active listings had the biggest drops in several months, according to the December housing report from the Greater Owensboro Realty Association.
The average sold price for December was $195,456 (a 13% increase over December 2020), with total sales volume at $33.6 million (a 34% increase over 2020).
After a spike to an average 76 days on market for the month of November, that time frame improved to 64 for December.
There were 172 homes sold in December, with 134 sales pending — again showing big jumps in both categories from the year prior. The 134 sales pending was the lowest of any month in 2021.
The current inventory of homes remains a challenge, with one 154 active listings — the lowest since June 2021.
The average price of active listings to close out the year was $199,857, which was the lowest average since June.
