Abq Home Sales down Slightly During April; Prices Up

In May, the pattern for single family detached home sales in metro Albuquerque got a little disrupted. The number of closed sales—981 during April— dropped slightly—all of 30 units, or 3%—from 1,011 during March. The Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors released the April sales report today.
April’s sales were 76% of the 1,299 homes with a sale pending during March, a low percentage. April’s closed sales performance was eight ahead of the 973 homes sold during April 2016. That’s a 0.8% increase.
The rest of the pattern stayed in place—fewer homes offered for sale, homes selling faster, prices increasing and more sales pending.
The median sales price was $194,500 during April, a $9,500, or 5.1%, increase from April 2016. The median sales price for March was $187,500. April’s average sales price was $235,875, up 8.8% from April 2016. The March average price was $222,759.
Pending sales were 1,331 during April, 1,299 during March and 1,080 during April 2016.
