How's the market doing here in Lake Of The Ozarks, MO?? That's the number one question I get asked.  According to Bagnell Dam and Lake of the Ozarks Association of Realtors data, we're off to a good start. Although the total number of volume of sales for our first quarter of this year is slightly lower than 2018 and even 2017, we are still up 11% in average sales volume over 2016's first quarter. The number of transactions closed for land and farm sales has increased significantly from last year's first quarter, while the number of closed transactions for condos and single family homes has slightly lowered. Since each different type of property has a little bit different stats, I would like to share that data with you. Lakefront homes in Lake Of The Ozarks total sales have been decreased about 11% this year's first quarter from 2018's first quarter with the number of transactions being 9% less, but the sales prices have only gone down about 3%, and the days on the market have gone down 8%, which means that homes are still selling at a great pace. For condos, the sales volume has gone down 12% with the number of transactions closed down about 9%, but the average sales price has only been about 3% lower, and the great news for condos is that the days on the market is considerably less, 28% less days on the market than the first quarter of last year. Great news for off-water homes. Although the sales volume was lower, it was only 1% lower. The number of homes sold went down about 14%. However, the fantastic news is that the average sales price went up 16%. Days on the market, slightly higher at 3%. So, what does that tell us? It tells us that each type of property is unique in their stats, but overall, the market is still doing fantastic with volume and sales higher than a couple of years ago. We have a slight change, but all in all, Lake Of The Ozarks real estate market is still strong, and this is the perfect time for you to put your home on the market if you've been thinking about it. Don't wait.
