More than halfway through the year, and halfway through July, it's time for an update on home sales and housing market inventory in Alexandria, Virginia Zip Code 22304 (the area where I live). In the last four months there has been a lot of activity with an additional 200 sales within 22304. Back in March, the absorption rate amounted to 33 homes sold per month YTD 2007. With the quickened pace, we've now had an average of 48 homes sold/month.
As of this morning, there are 269 homes on the market in the 22304 area of Alexandria, representing a 5.6 months supply, down from a 7 month supply in March 2007. This means the market is getting better for sellers and evening out towards a more balanced market.
