-While active inventory is down 26% from last July, pended sales are up 30% in Salt Lake County and surrounding areas.

-Median price is currently $260,000, which is an all time high for Salt Lake County and has been moving upwards at a steady rate of 2% since February.

-1,074 properties closed, which represents a 19% increase from the same time last year.

-In Salt Lake County, June 2015 was the first month in the history of the MLS where sold volume amounted to over $500,000,000.  Both June and July of this year did over $500 Million in volume. Again, that's never happened. In the summers 2006 and 2007, more units closed than this summer (about 10% more) but those sales did not amount to the same volume amount.

-Summary: Our market is strong and is trending upwards at a measured pace. In spite of slightly constrained inventory, we are still seeing a notable increase in sales and pendings, which suggests buyer confidence.
