  November Home Sales Bounce Back 

December 16, 2017 – According to our Lubbock Area Housing Report, home sales were up 7% compared to November 2016, with 285 homes sold.  The median price for Lubbock area homes was up slightly at $155,000, a 0.8% increase from November 2016.

The number of active listings on the market increased for the fourth straight month, up 13% compared to November 2016, with 958 active residential listings.  Lubbock's monthly housing inventory also increased from 2.6 months in November 2016 to 3.0 months in November 2017. Months inventory is the best indicator of a buyer's or seller's market.  Currently, Lubbock remains a strong seller's market, with months inventory remaining well below the 6.5 months that represents a balanced market, according to The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University.*

Homes spent an average total of 71 days on the market in November 2017, one day less than November 2016.  This is a positive indication that, generally, transactions are going smoothly from the time a home goes on the market, to when an offer is accepted, to the time it closes.
