How did the Macomb County MI real estate market fare during the 4th quarter of 2009?

As I read through the statistical reports for Macomb County yesterday and this morning I tried to get a feel for what I am seeing and analyzing.

2009 was indeed a tough year for home prices in the county as a whole, with the average sales price of a single family residential home plunging by 22.5%.   Looking at the sales prices recorded in the month December there seemed to be a bit of stabilization:  There was only a 2.7% drop in sales prices when looking at December 2009 compared to the sales prices in December of 2008.

One months worths of sales prices in comparison to the previous years for the same month however doesn’t predict a trend. Yet when I look at the 4th quarter of 2009 I am encouraged:

sales price:    $92,073
October through
December 2009
Average sales price:

This is the smallest difference in reported sales prices that I have seen in years.  It is also encouraging to me because if this trend holds we may be starting to see some stabilization in the freefall of prices that have it our region of Michigan so hard during the last several years.

A couple of things need to happen to ensure that this stabilization occurs:   Job loss needs to be nipped in the bud, and there cannot be an increase of foreclosures to hit our real estate market again.

Over the next week or so I will be posting more comprehensive sales analysis for each section of Macomb County.  (For example:  How the city of Eastpointe is doing in comparision to Shelby Township, etc. In the meantime, if you would like a detailed analysis of how your neighborhood is faring please don’t hesitate to contact me for a no obligation market report.  No pressure – just conversation.
