"Where Experience Matters"
Midland Real Estate Trends
The Midland market has sustained itself remarkably well during the mini correction we have been going through in recent months. The average sales price for 2019 was $345,828 up 7.4% over 2018's $322,039 while the average days on the market remained nearly identical at 34 days versus 31 in 2018. Houses currently available for sale are a very healthy 560. In 2019 we had 2,692 homes sold as opposed to 2,637 in 2018 a nice 2.1% increase. The total sales volume for the year was an amazing $930,495,535 nearly a billion and up almost 10%. The highly competent Lanier Team accounted for 7% of the total market production of the 800+ Midland realtors.
The 30-year fixed mortgage rate recently fell to 3.5%. This is a drop of 1.5% in the last year making current mortgage rates in the neighborhood of the record lows that we saw in 2012. Not surprisingly, many buyers are ready to purchase with these attractive conditions. Our resilient economy and an increasingly attractive inventory in homes available for sale are key in making this a perfect time for buyers to purchase a home.
