The Towson home sale statistics for October 2010, specifically the 21204 zip code, were down in a number of areas, compared with the same time last year.
Total sold dollar volume was down 40.91% and only four houses settled in the month, with seven settling last October. Though there were three fewer settlements, the prices on those four were up 3.4%, averaging $339,150 versus $327,986.
Twenty new homes came on the market, while ten went under contract, leaving 84 active listings for buyers to choose from. The time it is taking for houses to sell skyrocketed over last year, up 58.7% from 184 days a year ago, to 292 days now. This means it is taking, on average, the majority of a year to sell a house in 21204!
September 21204 home sale statistics were much better, which shows things are getting shakier as we head into the winter season. The October Timonium home sales report also showed a drop in number of homes sold, with prices rising a minimal amount as well.
