Sykesville, MD Real Estate Market Analysis for April 2017!

The Sykesville, MD Real Estate Market Analysis shows a stable market for April in this lovely town outside of the Baltimore Metro Area. The Days on the Market is down, Median Sales are up, and inventory is down.

Sykesville is a small suburb in Carroll County, Maryland and is about 1/2 hour drive to the Baltimore area. This location is a hot spot for first time home buyers! It offers decent land which is more affordable than other areas.  The small drawback would be the commuting distance to Baltimore, Columbia, DC, etc.

Indicator #2 – Active Listings

There are 94 active listings on the market for April 2017. which is a 26% and 27% decrease from last year. With a smaller inventory, active buyers are looking at all their options, but are moving quickly on homes they love.

The average sales price on homes is lower than in previous years. This is most likely the result of older homes being placed on the market, not the newer developments.

The Sykesville Real Estate market has been gaining steam during March 2017. For this small town, these numbers show a robust summer season! With home sales up, days on the market down, and small inventory! We are seeing excellent growth this year for Sykesville!

Sykesville is a smaller suburb, located further out comparatively to surrounding Maryland Suburbs. This area is a hot spot for first time home buyers! It offers a home with land which is often more affordable than other nearby areas.  The small drawback would be the commuting distance to Baltimore, Columbia, DC, etc.
