Tulsa Real Estate Market Inventory Analysis

Tulsa Real Estate Market Inventory Analysis for the Tulsa MLS during October 2013 indicates the market is continuing to get stronger.

Buyers are still purchasing properties even though interest rates have swing upward from historic lows.

Sellers are putting their homes on the market at a bit higher rate than a year ago, continuing to reduce the critical need for listing inventory by reversing the trend.

The active inventory and absorption rate is slightly higher than last month.

Homes have appreciated at a rate last month which is consistent with rates we saw prior to the housing bust (around 6% per year), which indicates that our market has recovered and our prices are stabilizing.

Average Days on Market Shortens

The average number of days that homes spent on the market before selling decreased by 6.95 days or 11.53% in September 2013 compared to last year’s same month at 60.30 DOM.

Sales Success for October 2013 is Positive

Overall, with Average Prices going up and Days on Market decreasing, the Listed versus Closed Ratio finished weak this month.

There were 2,145 New Listings in October 2013, up 3.67% from last year at 2,069. Furthermore, there were 984 Closed Listings this month versus last year at 1,036, a -5.02% decrease.

Closed versus Listed trends yielded a 45.9% ratio, down from last year’s October 2013 at 50.1%, a 8.38% downswing. This will certainly create pressure on a decreasing Month’s Supply of Inventory (MSI) in the following months to come.
