The Duluth area housing market is off to a somewhat of a sluggish start in early 2018, according to new stats released by the The Lake Superior REALTORS®. Compared to January 2017, actual closed sales dropped by over 19 percent last month, and pending sales have also dropped by roughly 26 percent.

Available inventory is also down compared to last year around this time, falling by just over 9 percent year-over-year.

Not surprisingly, home prices throughout the Duluth area continue to be on the rise as inventory keeps dropping. The median sales price increased slightly from $145,000 in January 2017 to $149,375, while the average sales price jumped at an even higher rate from $165,473 last year to $173,885 this year.

Make a clear path

If you want to get a buyer you need to make sure people can reach your home, and that means a clear path to your front door. Clean up the front walkway and porch by sweeping up lingering leaves from the fall season, and make sure your walkway is shoveled and tidy in case it snows.

Making matters worse, the number of homes listed on the market also dropped by 9% last month compared to last year’s inventory, which was already considered low at the time.
