Monthly Maine Real Estate Sales Update

September 2018 Single Family Homes 

Despite a dip in sales during September, most Maine Realtors continued to express optimism for the southern Maine housing market.  Sales of single-family existing homes declined 5.1% comparing September 2018 to September 2017. The value of those homes, tracked statistically by the Median Sales Price (MSP), indicates a rise in home values of 3.8% to an MSP of $215,000. The MSP indicates that half of the homes were sold for more and half sold for less. 

Additionally, the three-month rolling quarter sales statistics are up 3.4% and year-to-date sales are up 2.2% compared to 2017.

Home sales have been trending downward the last several months, while selling prices have continued to inch upwards. The price of $295,000 for the month of September was the first in the last five below $300,000 threshold. Inventory levels have remained essentially unchanged for the last several months – and is actually up 39% since January.
