Tag Archives: Sales – 2009 vs. 2008

Some statistics

Russ Pruner’s firm, Shore & Country, always has a good data base on line and he’s got an interesting chart up now, showing the fall off in volume and sales in the first half of 2009 from the first half of 2008.  Check the entire chart, but here’s a brief summary:

Single Family Homes        2008                                        2009                           % change

Units:                                   270                                           111                                        (59%)

$ Vol.                             $768,659,932                 $250,800,602                          (67%)

Avg. Price                     $2,846,889                       $2,259,465                                (21%)

Med. Price                     $1,950,000                      $1,405,000                              (28%)

 

Keep in mind that by 2008 the market was already starting its dive. For the full year, 2008’s unit sales were off 37% from 2007 and dollar voulme off 35%. I’ll dig around to get the six month data.
