Ypsilanti’s Real Estate Market
The 2021 Ypsilanti real estate market continues to be a strong seller’s market, with low inventory levels, strong price appreciation, and many over list price sales occurring. These August 2021 stats are compared to the previous year’s August 2020 statistics, which means for the year over year comparisons, numbers of transactions, and days on market can be skewed because there was a hot moment where real estate was effectively brought to a standstill. (Thanks, Covid-19.)
Average Sales Price
The average sales price for a single family property (house or condo) sold in Ypsilanti in the month of August 2021, was $209,754. Compared to August of 2020, this is up 5.79%. Median sales price rose 23.01% to $212,500, when comparing August 2020 to August 2021.
Days on Market
Properties sold in August of 2021 were on market for an average of 21 days. This is down nearly 15.84% from August 2020.
Properties Sold At or Above List Price
August of 2021 saw a 15.84% increase in the number of properties sold, compared to August of 2020, with a total of 76 properties receiving new owners.
A newly tracked statistic for the Studio is the percentage of properties each month that sell at or above list price. This metric is another way to gauge the supply/demand inequity in the Ypsilanti market. In August of 2021, 78.95% of the properties sold at or above list price.
When 78% of all home sales are at or above list price, you can be sure that there is fierce competition among buyers for the limited stock of inventory that is coming to market. This is the highest percentage among the Washtenaw county municipalities that we track.
