New Hampshire Real Estate Market Data: September 2014

  
  
  

You’ve heard it before - real estate is local. To that end, it is important to take a look at New Hampshire real estate market data as a whole as well as county and town data to get an accurate picture of the real estate market.

Here we will look at the market activity for New Hampshire single family residential homes and condos in September 2014 in comparison to August 2014 data as well as September 2013 data as released by the New Hampshire Association of REALTORS® (NHAR).

NH Real Estate Market Data Compared to August 2014:

Statewide in September 2014, we saw varying degrees of decrease in the following areas: closed sales, median sales price and pending sales for both single family residential properties and condos compared to August’s activity. Unfortunately, we also saw an increase in days on market overall compared to August 2014.

However, the good news is that we saw a decrease in new listings of these residential property types as well as a decrease in the overall number of homes for sale. This is consistent with the natural wave of inventory we’ve seen in New Hampshire the last few years - an increase of inventory in the spring peaking in the summer and then receding in the fall. A smaller inventory is one of the advantages of having your home on the market during this season.

Now, let’s compare the numbers for September 2014 to September 2013.

NH Real Estate Market Data Compared to 2013:

This year, we saw an increase in closed sales of both single family residential homes and condos compared to September 2013, with 1,332 closed Single Family and 352 closed condos this month. However, year to date sales for both are down 2.4% compared to last year.

Additionally, the median sales price statewide remained constant this month for single family residential sales at just shy of $225,000 compared to September 2013, while the median price of condo sales actually increased by 3.3% to $173,450. Both the single family residential and condo median sales price has increased just over 3.5% year to date compared to 2013, but were down from the median sales price in August 2014.

Let’s look more closely at county data.

Grafton and Sullivan County Real Estate Market Data:

New Hampshire

Grafton was one of five New Hampshire counties that saw a decrease in single family residential closed sales in September compared to the same month last year (from 92 to 80), while Sullivan was among the other half that saw an increase in closed sales this month compared to September of last year (from 39 to 46). However, both Grafton and Sullivan counties are down for year-to-date single family residential sales in 2014 compared to 2013.

September pending single family residential sales in Grafton (84) and Sullivan (43) are both up compared to September 2013, but down year to date compared to last year.

We also saw an increase in September’s median sales price for single family residential homes in both Grafton (up to $184,500) and Sullivan (up to $181,830) this month, Grafton by a whopping 20% compared to September 2013. Also, consistent with statewide data, the year to date median sales price was up from 2013 for both counties (Grafton up 1.4% to $183,000 and Sullivan up 5.7% to $148,000).

For condo sales, Grafton saw a slight decrease in closed properties down to 40 in September compared to 43 in 2013, but the year to date number is slightly up from 275 last year to 278.

The median sales price for condos in Grafton County was down 15.6% to $143,500 in September compared to 2013. Year to date, it was only down 4.6% down to $165,000.

Finally, Grafton County’s average days on market was down to 162 days for condos this September compared to September 2013. However, the year to date days on market is up compared to 2013 for both property types in Grafton County (132 for single family residential and 180 for condos).

For Sullivan County, the single family residential home days on market is up 29% to 172 days for the month compared to September 2013, but down 12% to 133 days for this year to date. Meanwhile, it is reversed for condos - days on market is down for the month compared to September 2013 but up year to date in Sullivan.
