It’s hard to believe we’ve just completed the first month of the year! This week we have the La Plata County Residential real estate numbers for the month of January. With 68 total sales, it’s an interesting start to the year. This is the highest number of sales in any January since prior to 2010. Historically, the winter months tend to be the slowest in our area, so it’s a positive sign that January started off slightly higher than several past years.
The median sales price for the month ended at $384,686. This is lower than the end of 2017, so we will watch it as the year progresses to see if it inches up towards last year’s numbers.
We are excited for the strong start to the year, and hope the momentum continues. Now is a great time to start thinking about buying or selling in preparation for the spring selling market. Visiting open houses is a great way to gain an understanding of the market and what is available. Max will be holding an open house at Crimson Cliffs #17, 18 & 8 on Saturday from 1-3, and Cassie will be holding 2253 W. 3rd Avenue on Sunday from 1-3. Stop by, visit the homes, and chat with us. We’d love to see you! As always, we welcome any questions you may have on the La Plata County real estate market.
