While the North Idaho real estate market remains a competitive one, new data courtesy of the Coeur d’Alene Association of Realtors points to more opportunities for those looking for homes.

“We are seeing some positive signs for homebuyers as the recent months have shown continued modest improvement in available inventory,” said Kristin Johnson, president of the Coeur d’Alene Association of Realtors. “In a competitive market like this, buyers need every advantage they can get, and working with a Realtor to make the best purchase offer is a smart move.”

The past five months have shown continued increase in our existing inventory in Kootenai County, according to data from the CDA Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and shared with The Press courtesy of Sarah Kestler, director of communications and events for the Coeur d’Alene Association of Realtors.

Key stats for the month of July 2021:

• Current active residential listings — 506.

• Days on market — 78 (a decrease of 20.4% compared to July 2020).

• Median sale price of sold homes — $460,000 (an increase of 37.3% compared to July 2020).

• New construction residential closings for the month — 82 units vs. 120 units in 2020 (a decrease of 31.7%).

*Data as of Aug. 11, 2021.
