Here’s a quick summary of what we learned this September:


In August, 24 single family homes were sold and 104 homes were offered for sale, up  from 99 homes offered for sale in August of 2018 and compared to the 12 month average of 97 homes offered for sale.

Active Listings Sold Listings
August 2019 104 24
August 2018 99 18
12 month average 97.31 15.69

Inventory up typically results in prices down due to the law of supply and demand.

Months of Inventory:

Realtors use an analysis called Months of Inventory to evaluate the real estate market. The Months of Inventory is equal to how long it would take to sell the existing inventory if no new houses were put on the market.  When the Months of Inventory is below four months, realtors call it a seller’s market because the supply is relatively low so sellers have a stronger position in negotiations between a buyer and a seller. When the Months of Inventory is above seven months, realtors call it a buyer’s market because the supply is relatively high and buyers have a stronger position in negotiations. Months of Inventory between four and seven is considered a normal market with a good balance of buyers and sellers.

Months of Inventory
August 2019 4.33
August 2018 2.61
12 month average 7.72

The last few months of sales in Clark have been a little unstable and buyers end the summer with a bit of an edge. An increase in inventory contributes to this and prices may drop.
