Average sales price gain understates rise in condo values

The gain in average sales price at Franklin Crossing for 2013 was a miniscule 0.6%, but this statistic gives a misleading read on home values at the condo community.  Of the six unit sales at Franklin Crossing during 2013, three sales had low prices that skewed the average sales price downwards.

One low-priced unit was a short sale that had sat neglected for over a year.  It had failed to sell in 2012 with a days on market (DOM) of over 400.  This unit came back for sale in 2013 at a low price that produced an accepted offer fairly quickly.  The second sale was one of the only six one bedroom units at Franklin Crossing. This home sold for well over assessed value, but since it had only one bedroom, the relatively low sale price of this unit further skewed the average sale price at Franklin Crossing down.  The third low-priced sale at Franklin Crossing in 2013 was an estate sale with a quick-sale price.  This unit went under agreement in four days.  It likely could have set a higher asking price and still readily found a buyer.

It is reasonable to ignore the three low-priced sales at Franklin Crossing and focus on the average sales price of the other three Franklin Crossing units that sold during the year.

The average sales price of those remaining three units was $134,000 with a DOM of 26 – a much better showing for Franklin Crossing transactions in 2013!
