The average sales price has increased from $217,453 in 2017 to $245,251 a 12.8% increase. 

Also worth noting is that the average days on the market until sale is down by 38.2 percent. From 34 days in June 2017 to 21 days in June 2018. For the year, the days on the market until sale is down by 41.1%. From 56 days in 2017 to 33 days in 2018. 

Inventory of homes for sale is down by 36.7% in June. It went from 60 homes in 2017 to 38 homes in 2018. 

The numbers point to a shortage of homes available for sale, so the days on the market and the increase in average sales price go hand in hand. When there aren't as many homes, buyers will work faster to buy them and the sellers can list them for more money.
