Median Sale Price:

One of my favorite metrics for analyzing real estate markets is Median Sale Price. In the graph below, I’ve drawn a black line representing the median sale price trend since 2011. From January 2011 to November 2015, we’ve seen a 58% increase in single family home sale prices! That’s an impressive figure, but it doesn’t quite tell us what the trend is today.

If you’re considering buying or selling a home soon, you probably want to know how quickly prices are changing right now. To answer this question, I like to look at the median sale price for each month over the past year, and average the percentage change between each month. The figures circled in green below show an average increase of 1.4% each month.
