Fishers Real Estate Report - July 2010Posted by Mike Taylor on Wednesday, August 11th, 2010 at 11:49am.
As expected, the tax credit hangover has officially affected the Fishers real estate numbers in a big way. Here are the YTD stats for all homes for sale in Fishers:
Number of Homes Sold
Average Sales Price
You will notice July saw a 44% decrease in the number of homes sold as compared to last year. The average sales price is actually up 12% over last year and up 4% YTD which is great news. Here is a graph looking at the average sales price for 2009 vs. 2010:
What is not great news is that this represents the 3rd straight month of declines in the number of homes sold. One of the things I started tracking this year is the number of “distressed” homes that are selling as a percentage of the total sales. This month, Fishers has 13 distressed properties sell which represents 15% of the total sales. Fishers short sales and Fishers Indiana foreclosures are making up more of the market this year than last so far.
The average price per square foot was $96 and the average list price to sales price was 97% for July 2010. It will be interesting to see how these numbers play out the rest of the year. I would hazard a guess to say we are going to see a few more months of declines due to the tax credit and then we should see the market start to normalize.
