The average Days On Market (DOM) shows how many days the average property is on the market before it sells. An upward trend in DOM tends to indicate a move towards more of a buyer's market, a downward trend a move towards more of a seller's market.

Selling Price Per Square Foot
The selling price per square foot is a great indicator for the direction of property values. Since median sales price and average sales price can be impacted by the 'mix' of high or low end properties in the market, the selling price per square foot is a more normalized indicator on the direction of property values. The November 2013 selling price per square foot of $700 was down -2.5% from $718 last month and up 16.3% from $602 in November of last year.
Selling Price vs Listing Price
The selling price vs listing price reveals the average amount that sellers are agreeing to come down from their list price. The lower the ratio is below 100% the more of a buyer's market exists, a ratio at or above 100% indicates more of a seller's market. The November 2013 selling price vs list price of 98.7% was down from 111.4% last month and down from 98.9% in November of last year.
