TERMINOLOGY EXPLANATIONS:

Active – Properties in Active status are available for sale and have no ratified contracts pending. The count represents Active Listings at the end of the time period.

All Pendings – This represents the number of listings that were Contingent or Under Contract at the end of the time period, regardless of when the listings were contracted.

Attached/All – This facet encompasses any listing that falls into the categories of Attached Townhouse or Attached Condo/Coop.

Attached/Condo-Coop – Condo/Coop indicates a listing where the listing is part of a Condo or Coop building.

Attached/TH – Excluding any listings marked as Condo/Coop, the Attached/TH category includes:  Attach/Row House, Back-to-Back, Duplex, Garden 1-4 Floors, Hi-Rise, 9+ Floors, Mid-Rise 5-8 Floors, Multi-Family, Over Storefront, Penthouse, Quad, Semi-Detached, Townhouse, Triplex and Vacation Rental.   The Type of Garage/Parking Space value is not used in this calculation. (See Detached for related information.)

Average – Average is the mean value of the dataset.  The Average Sales Price is the sum of the total sales dollar volume divided by the total number of units sold.  The Median Sales Price is the Sales Price at which half of all sales are above and half are the sales are below.  Sometimes the Median Sales Price is a better indication of the market than the Average Sales Price, especially when a few sales may distort the Average Sales Price.  Example:  Ten sales are in an area. One was for $1,000,000 and nine were for $250,000.  The Average Sales Price would be $325,000 and the Median Sales Price would be $250,000.

Average Sold Price to Original List Price Ratio – This represents the average of the ratios for the gross sales price to the original list price for individual listings.  Example scenario to help illustrate:

Listing A: List Price = 100,000; Sold Price = 90,000; Ratio = 90%
Listing B: List Price = 200,000; Sold Price = 150,000; Ratio = 75%
Listing C: List Price = 1,000,000; Sold Price = 700,000; Ratio = 70%

In this scenario, the SP to OLP Ratio is ((90+75+70)/3) = 78.3%.  To further clarify, we do not take the aggregate list price and divide by the aggregate OLP.

Contract – Properties in Contract status have a ratified contract and are pending settlement.

Days on Market (DOM) – Days on Market is a calculation based upon the number of days a property is for sale.  It is calculated based upon the property and accumulates between listings.  Days on Market is calculated from the date when a property first comes on the market (list date) to the time it is taken off the market due to a sale (contract date) or off market condition (off market date).  If a property changes between Active and other statuses during the life of the listing(s), the cumulative on market time is tracked.

Detached – The value for Detached in the Sold and Active Detail sections is determined by the Type in the listing.  Detached values include: Bed & Breakfast, Detached, Double Wide, Dwelling w/Rental, House of Worship, Mobile, Other, Patio Home, Rooming House, Vacation Home.  Listings that are a Condo or Coop can be included in detatched if specified within the listing.  The Type of Garage/Parking Space value is not used in this calculation.  (See Attached and Attached/TH for related information.)

Home Type – Detached properties are those that do not share a partial or complete wall with another property. Attached properties share a partial or complete wall with another property.   Attached is further delineated to indicate whether it is a condo or coop building vs. a townhouse, row house or similar.

Inventory – Inventory indicates the number of homes for sale with Active status.

List Price – List price is the current or last list price of a property.

Median – Median is the middle value of the dataset.  The Average Sales Price is the sum of the total sales dollar volume divided by the total number of units sold.  The Median Sales Price is the Sales Price at which half of all sales are above and half are the sales are below.  Sometimes the Median Sales Price is a better indication of the market than the Average Sales Price, especially when a few sales may distort the Average Sales Price.  Example:  Ten sales are in an area. One was for $1,000,000 and nine were for $250,000.  The Average Sales Price would be $325,000 and the Median Sales Price would be $250,000.

MoM – Month-Over-Month is the percent change for a given statistic from the preceding month.

New Listings – New listings represents the number of new properties placed for sale during the time period.

New Pendings – New Pendings is a count of listings that changed to either Contingent or Under Contract during the time period (New Pendings=New Under Contracts + New Contingents).

New Under Contracts – New Under Contracts is a count of listings that changed to Under Contract during the time period.

OLP Original List Price – Original list price is the initial price the listing was put on the market at.  While a price can be reduced over the time a property is for sale, the original list price is used in all calculations and graphs.

Pending – Pending properties are when a contract has been submitted and is ratified or in the process of being ratified.  It includes the statuses of Contingent and Contract

Ratio of Average Sold Price to Average List Price – This is the ratio of the aggregated average gross sold price to the aggregated average original list price of the listings.  (See also – Average Sold Price to List Price Ratio.)

Solds – Solds represents the number of units sold for the time period indicated.

Sales Price – Sales price is the gross sales price.  It is the price the seller accepted from the buyer in the contract.  It excludes seller concessions.  This is also called the Gross Sales Price.

Total Active Inventory – Total Active Inventory includes those properties that were active at the end of the time period.

Total Pendings – Total Pendings includes those properties that were pending at the end of the time period.

YoY – Year-Over-Year is the percent change for a given statistic from the same month in the prior year.
