Apple Valley Lake Real Estate Report Featuring Pending Home Sales

The pending ratio indicates the supply & demand of the market. Specifically, a high ratio means that listings are in demand and quickly going to contract. Alternatively, a low ratio means there are not enough qualified buyers for the existing supply.  These numbers change dramatically at the Apple Valley Lake depending on the time of year and weather conditions.  This time of year with snow on the ground and when the lake is frozen over there are simply fewer buyers looking than compared to the peak boating season during the summer.  

During the winter months the pending ratio typically ranges from 6% to 9% which is when the ratio is at it lowest for the year.  During the spring and summer we can see the "sale pending ratio" approach 25%.  The sunshine months bring people to the lake for a little fun in the sun boating, jet skiing and spending time at the beaches.  When people are on the lake it boosts buyer interest and also drives demand for Apple Valley Lake homes.

Taking a closer look at the graphic above, we notice that the $50,000 to $100,000 price range has a relatively higher number of contracts pending sale.  We also notice that the $100,000 to $150,000 price range has a relatively large inventory of properties for sale at 14 listings.  The median list price (or asking price) for all properties in this market is $142,500.
