For Week Ending June 23, 2018
The first half of the year in residential real estate fared as expected, with the most obvious markers continuing to be low inventory and higher prices. We are also seeing decreased affordability in many markets coupled with more urgency (lower days on market) and increased purchase offers (higher pending sales) ahead of perceived future rate increases that have not yet materialized in the wake of the 0.25 percent increase in the federal funds rate. All of this makes for a busy summer. Let’s examine the local market.
In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending June 23:
- New Listings increased 1.3% to 1,987
- Pending Sales decreased 3.7% to 1,437
- Inventory decreased 16.8% to 11,171
For the month of May:
- Median Sales Price increased 8.4% to $271,000
- Days on Market decreased 9.6% to 47
- Percent of Original List Price Received increased 0.7% to 100.2%
- Months Supply of Inventory decreased 12.0% to 2.2
All comparisons are to 2017
