Housing Statistics:

Commentary: 2006 – 2008 Housing Analysis
2008 was a slow year. The southern Maine market lost about 7-10% of its value on average from a year prior.
Transactions volume drops accelerated in 2008 with an average 1 year drop of 20-25% seen in all 4 counties followed.
The days on market continued a 5 year long trend of gradual increases that accelerated significantly in 2008 with the
average time for a home on the market in southern Maine topping 100 days and closer to 150 in the lower mid coastal
regions. Inventory levels have not increased significantly in York or Cumberland counties, but did inch upward more
modestly in Sagadahoc and Lincoln. The first time home buyer market remains the strongest overall and the 2nd home
market is the weakest having all but dried up. Look for improving conditions in 2009 if interest rates remain low and
the new presidential team can instill confidence in the financial markets.
