We enter the fourth quarter of the year knowing that the share of first-time home buyers rose for the first time in approximately three years.

Even though there are still more than two months remaining on the year, there is little to suggest that the prevailing trends of 2016 will suddenly change. If all holds firm, inventory will trend lower, prices will trend higher and sales will show that demand remains strong, despite having fewer homes to choose from.

  • New Listings decreased 4.7% to 1,174
  • Pending Sales increased 8.2% to 1,001

For Week Ending October 15, 2016

Housing starts may have fallen for the second month in a row, but the cause appears to be an abnormally large decline in the multifamily category. An increase in single-family starts and building permits is a better indicator of a market reacting positively to the prevailing inventory struggle.

  • New Listings increased 5.0% to 1,364
  • Pending Sales decreased 0.1% to 994
  • Inventory decreased 16.2% to 13,795

For the month of September:

  • Median Sales Price increased 3.6% to $230,000
  • Days on Market decreased 13.8% to 56

For Week Ending October 8, 2016

Cooling weather and recent interest rate hikes have fewer first-time buyers shopping for homes thus far this fall, just as many existing homeowners are cozying up to the idea of remaining in their current homes a little bit longer. With fewer home buyers and homes for sale, we may see sales and sales prices start to mellow, or it could mean that the more serious buyers and sellers will simply have less competition.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending October 8:

  • New Listings decreased 4.1% to 1,395
  • Pending Sales decreased 6.5% to 980
  • Inventory decreased 16.5% to 13,832

For the month of September:

  • Median Sales Price increased 3.6% to $230,000
