The Woodstock Real Estate Market

January 2021 numbers are in.  How did Woodstock stock up?

Woodstock Average Sales Price: $359,264

New Listings in Woodstock: 183

Average Days on the Market: 19 days 

Months Housing Supply: 1 month

Average Price Per Square Foot: $148

What does this mean? 

The sales prices are continuing to increase. We saw an 18% growth in the average sales price from December 2020 to January 2021.  Our inventory shrunk by 15.7% compared to December 2020 so we had less people list their home for sale.  This creates an even higher demand for properties. Properties sat on the market for about 19 days which is also down 57.1% from December. The real kicker our months supply of housing is at 1 month which is down 50% from last month. That means that if no one else lists their home for sale from here forward, we will run out of homes to sell within 1 month.  This number is normally much higher – close to 6 months.  The average price per square footage went up 9.6% to $148 from December.

Overall, it really is a great time to sell and a great time to buy.  Although prices are higher due to demand partner that with such a low interest rate and your payment is actually less on a higher priced home right now than what you could normally afford in a more level market.  When interest rates are low it allows you more purchasing power.
