Chaska Home Prices Up 7% YTD (Nov. 2012)

New Listings

Chaska MN, New Listings, Housing Market, Real EstateThe number of homes hitting the market in Chaska peaked in 2005 and as been falling ever since. This can be attributed to home owners giving up on selling their home due a very strong Buyer’s Market in years past and homeowners not wanting to take a loss on their homes. This can also be attributed to fewer homeowners having to short sale their home and fewer foreclosed homes entering the market.

As fewer homes enter the market there will be less competition among homeowners resulting in fewer homes for sale and moving closer to a Seller’s Market.

Since 2012 started the number of New Listings has been trending up and has been flat since Summer.

Home Sales and Housing Inventory

Chaska MN, Home Sales, Housing Inventory, Real Estate, Housing MarketThe number of homes for sale in Chaska (Housing Inventory) remained fairly flat from 2006 – 2010 and started to decline at the start of 2011.

If Housing Inventory continues to fall this may result in fewer Home Sales, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing since fewer homes for sale will push Home Prices up.

Pending Home Sales and Closed Home Sales follow each other pretty closely in most cases. Closed Sales are usually a month or two behind Pending Home Sales due to the difference from date of acceptance and date of closing. Home Sales have been rising quickly since the start of 2012.
