Memphis and Shelby County’s new home sales prices continue to climb. The average sales price of $319,357 in the third quarter marked the highest on record, amounting to a 6 percent price increase from the average new home sales price of $300,635 in Q3 2015.

The new-housing market saw a spike in the number of new home permits during Q3 2016 with 306 permits pulled, amounting to a 29 percent increase over the 237 new home permits pulled during Q3 2015 – a sign that builder confidence is returning to the market.

With the increase in permits, the unsold inventory of new homes in Shelby County rose 19 percent to 966 as of Sept. 30, compared with 814 houses in inventory as of Sept. 30, 2015. The current unsold inventory accounts for 13.5 months’ supply of new housing.

Through the first 10 months of this year, East Memphis’ 38117 ZIP code has recorded one of the highest average new home sales price: $748,550 across six sales. As vacant lots become scarcer, builders are tearing down existing homes across the area and building new, customized homes.
