Grand Rapids Homes Sales – May Market Report

Grand Rapids Real Estate Market Trends from May

May Market Report

May Market Report

In April, single family homes sales in the Grand rapids area were strong due to buyers  rushing to capitalize on the $8000 Tax Credit deadline. The number of homes sales in April was up almost 16% from March with a total of 1428 homes sold. And by the way, sales were up nearly 40% from this time last year. April marked the 6th month in a row of declining inventory.

Year to date  home sales are up nearly 27% over the same period last year with 4551 homes sold. The average price of a Grand Rapids home rose over last year, to $123,172. Short Sales and Foreclosures have fallen to their lowest level since August 2009 at 41% of sales. That is still quite a high percentage. Home sales are not expected to drop to drastically even though the tax credit has expired as we are entering the spring market, typically a busy time in Grand Rapids home sales.

One astonishing little number is that last year at this time, only 18 homes over $500,000 had been sold. So far this year, 33 homes over $500,000 have sold, nearly double the amount.
