This chart shows the number of Active Listings for sale. Active Inventory provides insights into the balance of supply and demand, which can affect home prices and the pace of home sales.

Albuquerque Housing Market – Months Supply of Homes For Sale

The Month’s Supply metric takes into account both Supply and Demand. It shows the number of months needed to sell all listed homes at the current sales rate. This indicator helps us understand the Buyer’s market vs Seller’s market mix. A low month’s supply (typically less than 3-4 months) indicates a seller’s market, and a high month’s supply (typically more than 5-6 months) indicates a buyer’s market. However, this is a general rule and applies to overall market conditions. Month’s supply of homes can vary by neighborhood in Albuquerque, price range, and property type. Additionally, seasonal factors can also influence this metric.

Days On Market

Days On Market (DOM) is the days a home is for sale before it comes off the market as Pending (from Active in the MLS to Pending in the MLS). It helps evaluate the demand and sales pace. We show DOM as average and median.

Price Per Square Foot

Price per square foot is an excellent measure of home price trends. It is calculated by dividing the sale price of the home by the total square footage of the home. This data helps compare the value of properties of different sizes and, therefore, will give a better price trend reading than the median and average. The charts show both the Median and Average Prices per square foot.

Median Sale Price

This chart shows the median price for all closed sales in the Greater Albuquerque Housing Market in the previous month. The median price is the middle value of all homes closed in the month. Half of the homes are sold for higher prices and half for lower prices. It is a useful indicator of market conditions and is less influenced by extreme values compared to the average sale prices. However, the median price can change seasonally because the size of homes selling in the spring and early summer usually are larger and have higher prices.

Average Sale Price

Here we show the Average price for all closed sales in the month. The Average (Mean) is the sum of all home sales in the month divided by the number of homes closed in the month. It provides a general idea of the average price of homes. The average price can be affected by high or low values in the month and may not represent the typical home price.
