Delphi Black Hills Market Snapshot September 2015

All the numbers look great for the Delphi / Black Hills area!

  • Sales Prices are up.
  • Number of home sales are up.
  • Inventory numbers and number of homes listed for sale are improved.  This is great news for sellers.  Sellers have less competition but buyers have less inventory to choose from.
  • With 3 months of inventory, the Delphi / Black Hills area sellers are in a seller’s market.  (A sellers’ market is 0-3 months of inventory.)  This is a huge improvement when at the bottom of the market, the inventory was 52 months!


What does all this mean? In a nutshell, the market has improved and is still improving for sellers, who are able to sell their home and in many cases, seeing a profit.

Buyers should be prepared to make decisions quickly, be willing and able to write a compelling offer, and be financially qualified with a reputable local lender.

Prices are still below what they should be, and there is still pent up demand.  That means there are still buyers and sellers waiting on the sidelines to make their next move.
