Birmingham Real estate Update – May 2021

The Alabama Center for Real Estate has released their report on the Birmingham real estate market, with stats updated through May 2021. We cover the highlights here!

The total number of houses sold increased over 33% compared to the same month last year. Meanwhile, the median (or middle) sales price increased 10.6%.

The average sales price, which is skewed by higher priced homes, increased a bit over 18% compared to last year. The average sales price was $301,894.

Days on Market, the average number of days it takes until a house goes under contract, declined over 43% to 17 days. This statistics have been continually declining for a long time. It indicates that if your house is in good shape and priced correctly, it should sell relatively quickly.

Total inventory, of the number of houses available for sale on the market, declined almost 35% versus the same period last year. Inventory has also been declining for a considerable period of time (10+ years).

Based on the current pace of sales, there is a 1.8 month supply of homes on the market. This is down from the 3.4 the prior month and the 3.6 months the prior year. Once again, this shows that this is a tight market. If your house is in great shape and priced right, it will sell, but on the flip side it will be hard to find a new home!
