My Take

On the surface March was fairly typical. Sold median prices declined $300,000 to $1,745,000. The average price reduction imploded from over half a million dollars to under a quarter of a million dollars. The supply of homes declined to more normal levels after soaring in the short month of February. And, as usual, current sellers want $1.25M more for their homes than March buyers were willing to pay.

Buried in the numbers: pending $ per square foot surged to an all-time high of $1,251. That is up over 28% from a year ago. Pending prices often lead, so check back next month to see if the sold $ per square foot have a corresponding move up.
