Last month (July 2008) Home Prices set an all time record high for our market, up over the previous peak price recorded in June 2007. Inventory and prices do fluctuate seasonally and this behavior is normal for all real estate markets, however we will be watching closely and keeping our readers updated as we head into the fall and winter seasons. For a closer look at the seasonality of the Alabama real estate market this article may prove helpful.

Pictures are worth a 1000 words, as the old saying goes, so we have provided the following chart depicting the average sales price of Huntsville Alabama Homes over the last 2 ½ years. When looking at the moving average price and trend line we see a moderate price appreciation over the last few years, yet August’s results are now testing this trend and thus future posts will be watching this closely.

As always it is important to note that these are average prices across the metro area and prices do fluctuate greatly depending on your area of the city, neighborhood, and condition / amenities of your home of interest.

Thus whether deciding to buy or sell, it is always wise to have your REALTOR® perform a Comparative Market Analysis prior to making an offer or setting a listing price. We do offer this service completely online and free without obligation by simply utilizing this request form.
