The Average Sold Price per Square Footage is Appreciating*

The Average Sold Price per Square Footage is a great indicator for the direction of property values. Since Median Sold Price and Average Sold Price can be impacted by the ‘mix’ of high or low end properties in the market, the Average Sold Price per Square Footage is a more normalized indicator on the direction of property values. The July 2018 Average Sold Price per Square Footage of $239 was up 2.6% from $233 last month and up 7.7% from $222 in July of last year.

The Days on Market Shows Neutral Trend*
