Cecil County Real Estate Market Report for January 2019


Are you thinking about buying, or selling, a home in Cecil County anytime soon?   If the answer is “yes,” you will find this market report useful.

How is the Cecil County Real Estate Market doing as we enter the new year?

Let’s try to answer that question by comparing market data from the months of January, 2019 and January, 2018:

 2019 2018
Active Listings404423
New Listings102 134
Average Days on Market99 117 
Median Days on Market70 61
Average Selling Price $222,351$218,205
Median Selling Price $219,950$217,250
Selling Price to Original List Price Ratio91.9% 92.8%
Closed Sales58 72
New Pending Sales 80 76
Months of Inventory 43.68

There’s no question that Cecil County’s Real Estate Market remained strong in January, 2019 as indicated by the increase in Average Selling Price and Median Selling Price over January of last year.  However, the number of closed sales dropped as Months of Inventory climbed.

Months of Inventory is a statistic calculated by dividing the number of Active Listings by the average number of Home Sales over a given period – 12 months in this case.  For January, 2019, Cecil County’s Months of Inventory was 4 meaning every listing in the county would sell in 4 months – given the current pace of home sales – an indicator of a seller’s market.

I feel that Cecil County’s real estate market is becoming more balanced.   It’s possible for buyers and sellers to negotiate favorable (fair) deals.  There’s no question that it’s a good time to sell a home in Cecil County assuming that asking price realistically reflects the property’s condition and location.  When writing offers, buyers need to rely on their Realtor’s value estimates and write offers that are in line with real world values.
