Mt. Adams Market Snapshot - May, 2010

by The Cincinnati Team

Homes and condo sales continued at a brisk pace in May, 2010 in Mt. Adams.  6 homes closed in the month of May.  There are currently 4 homes pending closing and 40 hMt. Adams Market Snapshot - May, 2010omes and condos that are actively listed for sale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mt. Adams is one of the few areas of Cincinnati showing signs of rebounding. Prices so far in 2010 are significantly above last year and 2005.  Most homes in Cincinnati are currently averaging below prices sold for in 2005.  This is causing difficulties for people wanting to refinance in this time of extremely low mortgage rates.  It is also a problem for those with little equity in their home, who need to sell because of a relocation or change in family circumstances.

According to Credit Suisse's monthly survey, traffic levels (number of visitors to homes for sale) have been slower in May.  This is caused by the end of the homebuyer tax credit.  It forced many buyers to buy ahead of what might have been their regular time schedule. Low traffic levels may result in a longer time to sell a house and price reductions.

The Cincinnati Multiple Listing Service reported an overall uptick of 25% from May of 2009 to May of 2010 on the number of homes sold in the region.  That is more than the 19% reported for nationwide home sales.  June sales are expected to also remain strong as the last of the tax credit homebuyers close on their homes.
