The Avon real estate market in September, 2012 was very much a reflection of the time of year, as total sales fell 18.5 percent versus the previous month’s total of 54 closings. In fact, September marked the third straight month that total sales fell relative to the previous month. But while sales were most definitely down versus August, compared to September of 2011 they remained unchanged. Also, from August through September of this year there were, on average, 52 closings per month. This represents a 10.6-percent increase versus this same period 1 year ago.
Another stat that failed to impress was that of total pending sales. September’s total of 43 represents an 18.9-percent drop versus the previous month’s tally of 53. Moreover, compared to this same month 1 year ago, total pending sales were down 4.4 percent. In fact, September marked the second consecutive month that Avon pending sales fell. But like our previous stat, when the most recent quarter that spans from August through September is compared to this same quarter 1 year ago, we see that there were, on average, 13.3 percent more pending sales each month, or 51 versus 45 respectively.
