Understanding Market Statistics

Attempting to understand market statistics can be a bit overwhelming at first. “All those numbers look fascinating, but what do they mean?” Some of the numbers in the chart on the left will be fairly simple to understand, but there are a few that aren’t so easy to figure out. Here’s a bit of extra information to help make the rest of these numbers a bit more useful to you.

  • Homes Absorbed translates as the number of homes sold.
  • Newly Listed means the number of new homes brought onto the market.
  • Total Inventory simply means the number of properties currently for sale.
  • Days on Market is basically the average number of days a home can expect to be for sale before a contract is closed.

Market Trends — 7-day vs. 90-day Averages

The charts below provide two sets of numbers: 7-day averages and 90-day averages. The 7-day averages are provided to give a real-time snapshot of the market. However, just like the stock market, these numbers may vary drastically from week to week. The 90-day averagesmooths out the peaks and valleys, giving you a more historically accurate picture of the local market’s health.

Intermediate Chart

Median Price

In real estate, the median price is many times used in favor of the average price because median price will typically offer a more accurate picture of the local price levels. When averages are used, a few overly high-priced or extremely low-priced homes for sale can unfairly skew the average. Using median price is a better choice as it allows these extremes to cancel each other out, thus restoring the balance.

Come visit the Renee Amey Team at booth #547 at the 60th KC Boat Show, Bartle Hall Jan 23-26, 2014. What a fun event for the whole family to enjoy. Look at all the new boats, ATV’s and fishing gear for 2014.  Consider putting that new boat on your very own dock right here in one of the great lake communities in Kansas City. Why drive 3-4 hours each way to a second home, only to spend the first day unpacking and repairing items on your investment that sits empty 50% of the year.  Visit us at
