The average Days On Market(DOM) shows how many days the average Property is on the Market before it sells.

Selling Price per Square Foot
The Selling Price per Square Foot is a great indicator for the direction of Property values. Since Median Sales Price and Average Sales price can be impacted by the ‘mix’ of high or low end Properties in the market, the selling price per square foot is a more normalized indicator on the direction of Property values. The April 2012 Selling Price per Square Foot of $389 was up 7.2% from $363 last month and up 6.0% from $367 in April of last year.
Selling Price vs Original Listing Price
The Selling Price vs Original Listing Price reveals the average amount that Sellers are agreeing to come down from their original list price. The lower the ratio is below 100% the more of a Buyer’s market exists, a ratio at or above 100% indicates more of a Seller’s market. The April 2012 Selling Price vs Original List Price of 97.8% was down from 98.4% last month and equal to 97.8% in April of last year.
