Oxford MI Real Estate– Oxford Home Sales Are Up

Oxford MI home sales are up 6%. The average sales price in Oxford is up 6% and the median home sales price is also up 14%. There has been $3,775,250 more in residential real estate sales so far in 2012 versus the same time frame in 2011 (the first 3 quarters). Listing inventory (Oxford homes for sale) is very low.

On Oct. 24, 2012 there were only 90 homes for sale in Oxford MI. With an average of 22 sales per month that is less than a 5 month supply of active listings.

Distressed home sales (short sales and foreclosures) are down in Oxford with distressed sales making up 42% of the total sales. In 2011 distressed sales made up 59% of the total home sales in Oxford, MI.

Total Sales Oxford MI (units):

2012: 195
2011: 183

Distressed Sales (units) Oxford MI:

2012: 82
2011: 108

Average Sales Price Oxford MI:

2012: $170,750
2011: $161,317

2011: $145,040

Sales Volume Oxford MI Home Sales:

2012: $33,296,330
2011: $29,521,080

The decline in distressed home sales contributes to the increase in overall home prices. And this is a catch 22 in a good way- the more Oxford home prices go up the less under water houses there are so less distressed home sales. As Martha Stewart would say: This is a good thing for the Oxford MI home owner. Or potential Oxford MI home buyer.

Woodbriar Sub, Oxford MI Home Sales Update

Home sale prices in Woodbriar Sub in Oxford MI seem to have stabilized over the past couple years and may even be shifting upwards. So far this year there have been 4 closed sales in Woodbriar ranging in sale price from $132,950-$183,000.

  1. 1141 Woodbriar 3 bedroom 3 1/2 baths bank owned $132,950 sold for $276K in 2006
  2. 444 Pine Valley 4 bedroom 2 bath bank owned $169,750 sold for $206,380 in 1999

  4. 445 Glen Eagles Ct 4 bedroom 2 full 2 half baths “normal sale” $183,000 sold for $262,975 in 2001

There is currently 1 listing in Woodbriar pending with an asking price of $159,900 and no homes actively for sale at this time.

Homes in Woodbriar Sub don’t sit around on the market long if priced properly, with an average time on the market of less than 9 days (2011 sales). I calculate days on the market from time a listing hits it’s final asking price until pending/ccs. Overpriced homes aren’t really “on the market”- they’re just active listings. 3 of the homes sold within 3% of asking price, 1 home sold within 4% of asking price and 1 home sold for 1/2% over asking price.

So far in 2011:

  • 4 closed sales
  • 2 bank owned
  • 0 short sales
  • 2 “normal” sales
  • Median sale price: $174,375
  • Average sale price: $166,168

Home sales in 2010:

  • 11 closed sales
  • 4 bank owned
  • 3 short sales
  • 4 “normal” sales
  • Median sale price: $159,500
  • Average sale price: $151,057

Home sales in 2009

  • 7 closed sales
  • 0 bank owned
  • 2 short sales
  • 5 “normal” sales
  • Median sale price: $147,250
  • Average sale price: $161,807

We’re still a long way from the average sales price of $233,300 that Woodbriar sold for in 2004 but so far in 2011 both average and median sales prices are above both 2010 and 2009.
