At the current sales pace, all the active inventory on the market would sell in 2.8 months, down from 3.5 months in February and up from 0.9 months in March 2022. The equilibrium point where buyers and sellers have roughly equal bargaining power is 4-5 months of supply. Pricing: The Baldwin County median sales price in March was $365,000, an increase of 4.3% from one year ago and an increase of 2.4% from February. The differing sample size (number of residential sales of comparative months) can contribute to statistical volatility, including pricing. ACRE recommends consulting with a local real estate professional to discuss pricing, as it will vary from neighborhood to neighborhood.
