Not surprisingly, the luxury segment continues to grow. The “Luxury” segment of the market increased 107%. This includes properties selling above $800K, where last year it was $600K. This year’s average luxury sales price was $1,252,000. While sales over the $1M were a rarity only a few years ago, in the last 2 years there have been 19 reported. Historically, a luxury listing would take years to find the right buyer, now the days on market have reduced significantly, an average of 71 days. With such an active market and significantly low interest rates, most buyers are still paying cash to stay competitive and financing post-closing.
