2014 Reports 2 - SalesBecause in my world, there can never be enough numbers, here is a little more data from the end of year 2014 reports. (And apologies for the non-number people. We’ll get back to the regularly scheduled programming next month.)

  1. Statewide sales were down from 76,257 homes sold in 2013 to 75,055 in 2014.
  2. Monroe County followed the same trend, with sales falling from 1547 to 1479 homes sold.
  3. Statewide, homes sold for an average of 93.5% of listing price, up from 92% in 2013.
  4. In Monroe County, we continue to prove that we are an exceptional market (of course we are!). On average, our homes sold for 95.7% of list price in 2014, compared to 93.8% in 2013.
  5. As a comparison, in Marion County (home of economics teacher, Mr. McGeath and the Lawrence Central Bears. Go Bears!), homes sales were down 3% and the median sales price went from $111,000 in 2013 to $117,000 in 2014.
  6. The winner of the Indiana county with the highest increase in median sales price was (drum roll please…..) Union County (east of Connersville, I think). Their median sales price rose 49.5% from $48,000 to $71,750. Of course they only had 16 closed sales in 2013 and 12 closed sales in 2014, so I need to go check with Mr. McGeath about sample size.

Do you have a favorite county? I have the stats for all of them! Just ask!
