Brunswick, Maine – January 2016 Real Estate Market Report

Fort Andross Brunswick ME 04011Winter weather has finally settled into Maine, bringing snow and colder temperatures to the Southern Mid-Coast Region.  In Brunswick, we saw that January was fairly lukewarm in terms of both the weather and Brunswick Real Estate activity!  Active Listings, Pending Sales and Closed Sales were all down ever so slightly from December’s tallies. 

January ended with just 67 Current Listings (down 2 from December),  36 Pending Sales (down 2 from December), and 18 Closed Sales in January (down 4 from December).  After dipping down a couple points last month,  Average Sales Price to List Price Ratio recovered nicely, and is back up to 98% for January.

Let’s compare January 2016 with January 2015 in Brunswick:

  • 67 Current listings in 2016 vs. 89 last January;
  • 36 Pending Sales in 2016 vs. 27 last January;
  • 18 Closed Sales in 2016 vs. 25 last January;
  • January 2016 Median Sales Price $239,950 vs. January 2015 Median Sales Price $155,000.

A shortage of Homes for Sale in Brunswick was a recurring theme during 2015.  In the next couple months, as we hit the early Spring Home Selling Market, we will keep on eye on Brunswick home prices as we’d expect that sustained low availability, combined with still favorable mortgage interest rates, will apply upward pressure on home prices.

If you are ready to sell or buy a home in Brunswick, call Maine Home Realty today!
