Not only were there 27 more sales in 2014 than 2013, the Average Home Sale Price rose on average by almost $52,000. At the same time there were fewer Active Listings in 2014 as well as fewer New Listings. Surely, a shortage of listings helped keep the prices up. But continually low interest rates also helped with the increase in sales and sale price. This activity reduced the Average Number of Days on the market from 23 in 2013 to only 18 in 2014. And the Percentage of Sold Price To Listing Price increased from 98% of asking price in 2013 to an amazing 99% of asking price in 2014.
