Hampstead Real Estate Real-Time Stats October 24 2016
Let's take a look at the Hampstead real estate market. Currently there are 130 sales pending in the market overall, leaving 276 listings still for sale. The resulting pending ratio is 32.0% (130 divided by 406). So you might be asking yourself, that's great... but what exactly does it mean? I'm glad you asked!
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.
"Current inventory is described as mildly active."

Breaking it down, we notice that the $200K - $300K price range contains the highest number of sold listings. Alternatively, a total of 203 listings have failed to sell in that same period of time. Listings may fail to sell for many reasons such as being priced too high, having been inadequately marketed, the property was in poor condition, or perhaps the owner had second thoughts about selling at this particular time. The $300K - $400K price range has the highest number of off-market listings at 72 properties.
