Weekly Market Update

    

The song remains the same as 2009 marches on: heavy sales, weak new listings, dwindling inventory of available homes.

  • For the week ending July 18 there were 2,736 signed purchase agreements, up 25.7 percent over the same week last year. 
     
     
  • Over the last three months there have been almost 7,000 more pending sales than there were during the same period in 2008. 
     
  • Sales are the heaviest in the lower price ranges but remain lethargic in the upper brackets.
     
  • The number of homes currently available is a full 30.5 percent behind this time last year—a drop of more than 16,000. Prospective buyers who believe they can wait for more inventory to appear may regret it.

(Report above is from MRIS’ Weekly Market Activity Report Dated July 27, 2009) 

Note: Whether we are in a Buyers Market or Sellers Market can vary wildly from town-to-town, neighborhood-to-neighborhood, and price range-to-price range. If you’d like more detailed information about your neighborhood – what homes are selling for, what the inventory is, what your home may be worth, etc – just give us a call at (703) 242-3975.

Weekly Market Overview

As we head full on into the summer market, are you wondering what’s happening in real estate in our area? If so – check out the weekly market snapshot below – brought to you from The Belt Team via MRIS reporting:

“Home sales activity in the MRIS region remains extremely robust as low mortgage rates, affordable inventory and the $8,000 federal tax credit for first time home buyers are all working in concert to create an environment attractive to buyers.

For the week ending July 11 there were 2,649 signed purchase agreements, up 29.2 percent over the same week last year.

Over the last three months there have been almost 7,000 more pending sales than there were during the same period in 2008.

New listings are a different story, as sellers hold back. For the week ending July 11 there were 4,106 new listings, down 13.3 percent from the same week last year. Over the last three months there have been over 10,000 fewer new listings than there were during the same period in 2008. 

WOW! Stay tuned – we’ll keep you posted!

Note: Whether we are in a Buyers Market or Sellers Market can vary wildly from town-to-town, neighborhood-to-neighborhood, and price range-to-price range.

Weekly Market Overview

Here is what MRIS reported yesterday:

For the 21st consecutive week in the MRIS region there were more pending sales this year than there were during the same week the year prior. Low mortgage rates, affordable inventory and the $8,000 federal tax credit for first time home buyers are all working in concert to create an environment conducive to heavy buyer activity. For the week ending June 27 there were 31.7 percent more pending sales than there were last year.

Heavy sales means heavy absorption of the homes available. Compared to one year ago there is 29.5 percent fewer homes for sale in the region, a drop of over 15,000 units.

Average Days on Market: Still higher than at this time in 2007, but lower than at this time last year.

Average Days on Market – May 2007: 87

Average Days on Market – May 2008: 112

Average Days on Market – May 2009: 108

Percent of List Price Received At Sale: Lower than in 2007, but close to this time last year

Percent of List Price Received At Sale – May 2007: 96.0%

Percent of List Price Received At Sale – May 2008: 92.4%

Percent of List Price Received At Sale – May 2009: 92.1%

Housing Affordability Index: Truly affordable, in fact historically affordable!

The Housing Affordability Index measures housing affordability for the MRIS service
region. The higher the number, the more affordable our housing is. An HAI of 120 would mean that the median household income was 120% of the necessary income to qualify for the median priced home under prevailing interest rates.

Housing Affordability Index – May 2007: 103

Housing Affordability Index – May 2008: 116

Housing Affordability Index – May 2009: 123

 

Months Supply of Inventory: Heading back to a balanced market (5-6 months supply of inventory)

Months Supply of Inventory – May 2007: 7.5 months

Months Supply of Inventory – May 2008: 10.5 months

Months Supply of Inventory – May 2009: 7.3 months

 

Note: Whether we are in a Buyers Market or Sellers Market can vary wildly from town-to-town, neighborhood-to-neighborhood, and price range-to-price range. If you’d like more detailed information about your neighborhood – what homes are selling for, what the inventory is, what your home may be worth, etc – just give us a call at (703) 242-3975.
