The Morgan Hill housing market is beginning to show some promising signs: The Closed Sales-to-New Listings-Ratio (CS:NL) rose nicely to 89.2% in June from 51.5% in May. June’s ratio nearly doubled 6/08’s of 47.2%. As you would expect Morgan Hill’s Average Sales Price (ASP) also rose in June, up 10.2% from May. However, the ASP of $614,500 is down 31.5% from last year’s average of $898,200 in June.
Next door: Gilroy’s activity seems to be headed in the right direction. While June’s CS:NL ratio dropped slightly from May to June, June’s ratio nearly doubled over last year’s figures. The Average Gilroy Sales Price was lower in June than May by 3.8% and down 32.5% from a year ago. Stay tuned however.
As I update these ’09 figures I predict an increase in ASP in both Morgan Hill and Gilroy.
