The statistics above are a decent reflection of the market, but don't quite tell the entire story. While overall sales are similar to last year, the inventory of available homes is down close to 30%. This is resulting in a more balanced market with multiple offer situations  ( bidding wars ) occurring on a regular basis.

In terms of Solon luxury homes, those that sell for at least $500,000, the numbers are similar to last year but moving in a positive direction. Not only is there increased activity in the higher-end market, but homes are selling much quicker as well.  The average days on the market for a luxury home in Solon has drastically decreased, from 224 days in 2011 to only 168 so far this year.


Moving forward, we anticipate low inventory and historically low interest rates will help in the recovery of the local Solon real estate market. If you or someone you know is thinking of selling their Solon home, please call us! There really is a shortage of nice homes on the market, especially is a few specific price points.

Overall, while things certainly aren't where they were 5-6 years ago, we are seeing improvement, which is a good thing for all of us who call Solon home.
