BOZEMAN, MT – The Gallatin Association of REALTORS® has released its residential real estate statistics for November 2017, revealing a consistent and healthy housing market.
“The Gallatin area residential real estate market is demonstrating steady, consistent strength as we close out 2017,” said Steve Candler, CEO of the Gallatin Association of REALTORS®. “The average sale price for single-family homes is up compared to last year, while the inventory of homes available and the average length of time homes spend on the market prior to sale are both down. This points to a highly competitive sellers’ market as we move into 2018.”
Single Family Homes
The number of new single-family listings dropped from 91 in November 2016 to 65 last month, a 28.6 percent decrease, while the number of closed sales was nearly identical to last year, increasing slightly from 115 to 116. The average number of days on market until sale was 66, down 7 percent from 71 in November 2016. The inventory of homes for sale decreased 18 percent, from 500 in November 2016 to 410 during the same period this year, while the average sale price increased 1.3 percent compared to last year, from $475,857 to $482,109. The months’ supply of inventory dropped from 3.8 to 3.2, a 16.3 percent decrease.
Condo/Townhouse Market
The number of new listings in the condo/townhouse market last month was nearly identical to last year, increasing slightly from 53 in November of 2016 to 54 this year. The number of closed sales also increased by 1, from 66 to 67. The average sale price fell from $303,862 in November 2016 to $278,245 last month, an 8.4 percent drop.
