Market Summary

In April we saw a significant change in our market with inventory as the number of active listings jumped by 50% over and the number of sales declined by almost 7%. This is the time of year we typically see more homes come on the market and sales increase as the summer buying season begins, not so this year.

The “true score” of the market is usually sales prices, but this may not be the case this year. The average sales price jumped by 9% but this is more of an indication of the homes in really good condition and in good locations are attracting most of the buyers. These “cream-puff” homes often times get multiple offers while all the other homes just sit on the market.

Additionally, with the rise in mortgage rates to over 7%, buyers in the price ranges under $600,000 are delaying their purchases. The buyers who can afford the more expensive homes often times don’t care as much about the rates as they can afford more or they are paying cash.

If rates continue to stay above 7%, the more affordable price ranges will struggle to sell this summer. If rates somehow find a way back down to around 6.5%, our market will really take-off again.
