For Week Ending December 8, 2018

The month of December often equates to a full-scale slowdown in residential real estate, as thoughts shift from buying homes to buying gifts and plane tickets to visit family and friends. This year could be different. The Federal Reserve is set to raise interest rates one more time in 2018. Interest rate hikes don’t necessarily create mortgage rate hikes, but they can. This may cause more purchase offers ahead of deeper affordability concerns in 2019.

  • New Listings increased 1.4% to 773

For Week Ending December 1, 2018

While recent stock market activity has displayed some heart-pounding drops and rallying rises, that volatility has not created the same tidal waves within residential real estate. Increasing home prices and mortgage rates have indeed created a sense of immediacy for some buyers and turned others away due to affordability concerns, but these decisions appear to be rooted in longer-term trends rather than the effects of a media headline or presidential tweet.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending December 1:

  • New Listings increased 7.0% to 877
  • Pending Sales decreased 9.0% to 904
  • Inventory increased 1.5% to 10,437

For the month of October:

  • Median Sales Price increased 8.6% to $265,000
  • Days on Market decreased 7.7% to 48
  • Percent of Original List Price Received increased 0.2% to 97.9%
  • Months Supply of Inventory remained flat at 2.4

All comparisons are to 2017
