Residential home prices made slight gains in October compared  to the same period of 2017, according to housing statistics released by  Maryland REALTORS®.  Average home prices rose  by 9.4 percent, while median prices also rose in October by 5 percent  as compared to the same time in 2017.
"The average residential home and median sale prices both made slight gains in October", said Maryland REALTORS® President Merry Tobin.

"The 3.8 months of available inventory is a negligible increase  over the 3.5 months of inventory in 2017, this will to start dampen  consumers enthusiasm impacting everyone's ability to buy or sell," continued Tobin. A 6 month to 6.5 month supply is considered to be a balanced market.

The October 2018 sales total of 6,135 represents a decrease of 7.6 percent from the October 2017 total of 6,641.

The October 2018 statewide median sales price was $279,000 representing a slight increase of .5% percent from the October 2017 median of $277,746.

Pending sales decreased 9.4 percent in October compared to a year ago to 7,426.
The Average Sale Price compared to Original List Price for October increased slightly from 95.8 percent to 96.1 percent from 2017 to 2018.  This slight increase indicates the market is becoming a seller's  market.
