After a bit of a hiatus, we finally sat down to talk the latest real estate market data we have- and much of it will surprise you!

There's a lot to unpack here. First, the average home sale price of $570k fell over the previous month, and last year. This is the FIRST time this has happened in several years, and offers pretty strong proof that the market has slowed down. For the last six months, prices had fluctuated but still remained higher than the previous year.

We also had just 261 sales last month! Again, the slowest activity we have seen in 2+ years, this time when it comes to sales volume. We do have a good clue as to why this is happening. Even though the average sale price is $4k LESS than last year, the average new list price is

(Pictured above: Monthly home sales have dropped precipitously over the last few months in the Staten Island market)

Home sellers have been reluctant to accept the market slowdown, insisting that prices are still up over the last year. That is now no longer the case.

The average home sale price in March came in at $570,088. This is down $13,426 from the prior month and $4,171 lower than one year ago.

Not only are prices down, but other indicators have also slowed considerably. March had only 261 closed sales, the lowest in 2+ years and down from 322 last March. Sold to list price ratio is down to 96.2%, tied with the prior month for a two-year low.

Month’s inventory is up to 7.46, another two-year high. This means it would take 7 1/2 months to
