Portsmouth NH Homes Real Estate Market Update – September 2008

Real Estate Market Update for Portsmouth New Hampshire
September 2008

Portsmouth NH Homes For Sale
Wherever we go, real estate is always one of the topics of conversation, and who isn’t
interested in real estate and how markets are doing!  There’s always someone
looking to buy a home, sell a home, or they know someone thinking about buying or selling real estate of some sort.

Homebuyers and home sellers in Portsmouth NH are no different, and I get asked about the New Hampshire real estate market all the time.  I love real estate, and helping people buy and sell homes and condos, so I never tire of real estate conversations!

Here is how the real estate market here in Portsmouth did
for the month of September 2008:

  • –  We currently have 82 homes listed for sale through the
    Multiple Listing System (MLS), with the average asking price being $369,450.
    There were 23 new listings on homes that came on the market for sale during the
    month of September.  The average days on the market for these homes for sale is
    114 days.
  • –  During September, we had 12 Portsmouth NH homes go under
    agreement or sale pending
    .  The average asking price of those sale pending homes
    was $340,708, and the average days on the market for those homes was 57
    days.
  • –  We had 17 homes in Portsmouth sell during September, and
    the average sold price of those homes was $322,053.  The average days on the
    market for those sold homes was 114 days.  Sellers, on average, received 94% of
    their last asking price.
  • –  During the month of September, we saw the listings on 9 homes in
    Portsmouth
    expire without selling
    .  Most likely these listings didn’t
    sell because of price – not being priced correctly for the current market, and
    buyers not seeing those homes as being a good value for the asking
    price.

The numbers above are showing us an absorption rate for
homes in Portsmouth NH to be just under 5
months
.  The absorption
rate
tells us how long it would take to absorb the current
inventory of homes for sale in Portsmouth NH if no other homes
came on the market for sale.  This month’s absorption rate has improved over August’s
absorption rate for Portsmouth NH homes
.
