North Riverside’s housing market for single family homes ended the 3rd quarter of 2014 with an interesting mix of sales statistics.  When we look at the three-bedroom homes, it’s a good story and a promising trend for real estate values for this village.  The median closed sales price was up 28% compared to this same time period in 2013 and that’s for only nine homes sold versus the sixteen from last year.  More dollars for sellers! 

     However, the four or more bedroom single family homes took a hit both in dollars and, slightly, in the number of units.  The median closed sales price was down 12.5% and the number of units sold in 2014 was only three compared to the prior year’s four homes sold in this category.  It appears that buyers preferred the three-bedroom homes over larger ones, but buyers may be able to negotiate a better “deal” with these larger homes in the coming months.

“Contingent” means that there is an accepted offer on the property as to the price, but many other things must be agreed upon before the home actually “Closes”.  These may include the results of the buyer’s home inspection, final financing approval, the specific closing date, and so forth.  Most “Contingent Homes” will proceed to closing, but some contracts fall through and the home reappears on the market as an “Active Listing”.    

 “Median Sales Price” is the midpoint between the High price and the Low price and is not the same as the “Average Sales Price”.  Since a few high prices or low prices can skew the “Average Price”, the real estate industry places more credibility on the “Median Price” to indicate a specific area’s home values within a specified timeframe.    

“Market Time” is often referred to as “Days on Market” and counts the number of days the property has been on the market.  It includes the days the current listing agent has offered the property for sale as well as the days any other real estate broker(s) may have had this same listing in the recent past.  “Market Time” differs from “Listing Market Time” in that “Listing Market Time” begins at zero days each time the property is listed for sale.
