Tenleytown Real Estate

If you are searching for a home in Tenleytown, the legal subdivision is AU Park or American University Park. First, let’s take a look at the Average Number of Active Listings for this month and the Average List Price of these Active Listings and compare to the 5-year average. This tells you what is currently on the market. If you are thinking about selling, it tells you your level of competition.

Then look at this month’s Average Number of Days on the Market and Average Number of Months Inventory and compare to the 5-year average. These numbers give you a feel for how long it is taking for properties to sell and how long it will take to sell the current inventory.

Next look at Average Sold Price of Sales for this Month and the Ratio of the Average Sale Price to Original List Price for the month and compare to the 5-year averages. These numbers indicate the average fair market values of the homes in this neighborhood and how well the listing agents and sellers were pricing their homes.

Finally look at a side-by-side comparison of the Average Price/Square Foot of Active Listings and the Average Price/Square Foot at which properties Sold. Although Square Footage is calculated the same way in all styles of homes and there could be other significant factors in the price, such as yard size, this is something that allows for a quick calculation and comparison.
