The numbers are in for June for residential real estate sales in Garland County, Arkansas. Compared to this same time last year, the total sales volume is almost identical to this time last year with the average home price now at $160,180.
June was the month for first-time home buyers and downsizing buyers. The number of single family homes sold under $150,000 was up 37% over May,
While single family home sales are doing better, condo sales seem to be slow to bounce back. Summer months are generally the time of year when we see condo sales pick up, but June was a little different this year. Condo sales dropped 27% compared to May.
Another positive factor in our real estate market is a look at the inventory level. Inventory is staying low this summer, which is beneficial in the market improving. Compared to this same time last year, inventory is down 11%
