Home Sales Are Brisk In May 2013 On Long Island

real estate attorneysThere were more homes for sale on the market in May of 2012 than there were in May of 2013 on Long Island. There were more new listings in Nassau County in May of 2013 than there were in May of 2012, due to the resurgence of more buyers coming back into the market place to purchase homes.

Supply And Demand Of Homes On The Market Place

Jonathan Miller, the President and Chief Executive of an appraisal firm called Miller Samuel Inc., recently stated “the supply coming on to the market can’t keep pace with demand.” He was referring to the market place in Nassau County. The strong demand by prospective purchasers is reducing the inventory of homes on the market in Nassau County. Although the inventory of homes on the market for sale has been decreasing, it is still greater than the normal inventory that existed prior to the housing crisis. A 6 ½ month supply of homes on the market is considered a balanced market in New York.

Home Prices Rise Slightly

The sale prices of homes in May rose approximately 4% in Nassau and Suffolk Counties on Long Island. This is far below the 15.4% increase in the sale prices of homes overall in the United States. However the 4% increase is still a positive factor. Rising home prices impact on the confidence in the economy. Cecelia Chen, a housing analyst for Moody’s Analytics recently stated “we are making strides towards a healthy market in terms of pace of activity.” She also stated, “Home prices are rising and construction activity is picking up, home sales are picking up, but the pace is exceptionally strong.”

Any increase in the amount of homes being sold and the prices they are being sold for is good for homeowner’s all over Long Island.
