Single Family home sales volumes also jumped from $12.4 million in 2014 to $16.7 million for the 4th Quarter of 2015. Condo and Townhome sales noted an increase in the 4th Quarter of 2015 to 16 units compared to 10 units sold in the same Quarter of 2014.
The median price of Single Family Home sales saw an uptick in Los Alamos when compared to the 4th Quarter of 2014 or $260,500 to $270,000 in this Quarter.
During this same period, the median price of Condos/Townhomes increased from $193,500 in the 4th Quarter of 2014 to $203,250 in 2015.
“The Los Alamos single family housing market experienced a nice jump in both sales and prices during the 4th Quarter of 2015,” LAAOR President David Horpedahl said. “The modest rise in interest rates and rising home prices may have helped to get a few of our buyers off the fence this Quarter,”
The median sales price is determined from only those sales listed on the Santa Fe Association of REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service, which does not include every sale in the area but has been used historically to track trends in the home buying market. The median is the price of a property that falls in the middle of the total number of properties sold during the Quarter.
