AVERAGE PERCENT OF LAST LIST PRICE – Percentage found when dividing a listing’s sales price by its list price, then taking the average for all sold listings in a given month, not accounting for seller concessions. Calculations are based on sold data.

Example:  A property is listed at \$200,000, reduced to \$190,000 and taken off the market. Then the same property is listed again at \$180,000 a few months later and is further reduced to \$175,000. It closes for \$160,000. We take the ratio of \$160,000: \$175,000 or 91.4% instead of \$160,000:\$200,000 because a new listing ID was issued.
