Our team at CGP Real Estate Consulting breaks down the monthly housing stats provided by the Hampton Roads Real Estate Information Network. Here’s what we see:

  • There were 5,264 active residential listings in October on the Southside of Hampton Roads*. This is a 16.47% drop year over year and a 4.5% decrease from September 2019.

  • There were 1,856 homes sold in October, a 9% increase from last month and 13.7% increase year over year.

  • Median Sales Price for sold properties is $245,000 - an increase of .98% year-over-year in October.

  • The current monthly inventory is 3.1 months supply.


THE BOTTOM LINE:

Inventory keeps decreasing while the number of homes sold & median home prices increases. Aside from the time of year, these conditions can be attributed to low-interest rates and increased home buying demand.
