Local Home Sales Data 4th Quarter 2015

Home sales in Salt Lake County in the fourth quarter showed a modest increase, but slowed considerably compared to previous quarters. There were 2,899 single-family homes sold in the final three months of 2015, a less than 2 percent increase compared to 2,857 sales a year earlier. In each of the first three quarters of 2015, home sales in Salt Lake County posted double-digit gains year-over-year (15 to 16 percent each quarter). Home sales also slowed in Davis County in the final quarter of 2015, up just 0.51 percent year-over-year. Utah County home sales fell nearly 3 percent.

According to the National Association of Realtors®, the Wasatch Front sales declines were not unique, with sales across much of the country sagging. This was a result of delayed closings resulting from the rollout of the RESPA-TILA Know Before You Owe initiative, which took effect on Oct. 3. The rule was implemented to offer greater transparency into the mortgage and closing process.

Unlike other Wasatch Front counties, Weber and Tooele counties in the fourth quarter saw home sales climb at 13 percent and 23 percent respectively.

In the final quarter of 2015, the median single-family home price in Salt Lake County reached $267,500, a nearly 5 percent rise compared to a median price of $255,000 a year earlier. The median home price in Davis County was $245,000, a 9 percent climb compared to $224,000 last year.

The bright spot in the fourth quarter was condominium sales. As first-time buyers struggled to qualify for escalating home values, many turned to townhomes and condominiums. In Salt Lake County condo sales increased to 822 units sold in the fourth quarter, a 16 percent rise compared to 706 sales in the fourth quarter of 2014. Utah County saw its condo sales rise 15 percent. The median price of condos sold in Salt Lake was $194,750, up nearly 13 percent from a year ago.

The average cumulative days a listing was on the market in the fourth quarter in Salt Lake County was 54 days, down from 75 days in the fourth quarter of 2014.
