Market Summary

February was a solid month for the local real estate market. Some of the good news included an increase in the number of new listings coming on the market which is a trend we think will continue. The additional listings helped more buyers find the home of their dreams, as sales also increased.

The month wasn’t great in terms of mortgage rates, as they climbed back up to nearly 7% after being closer to 6.5% at the beginning of the month. We do expect some relief for buyers in March as we think the mortgage rates will settle back down in the mid 6%’s. Prices continue to inch-up, but at a much healthier & sustainable rate. More good news was the jump in the number of new construction starts, up 174 units from last year.

The national economy continues to be a bit of a threat to us locally as inflation is still higher then economists would like, but the threat of a recession continues to diminish.
