Ever wonder why brass doorknobs are so ubiquitous?

As we turn toward the final and typically quietest quarter of the year, it is easy to wonder if we are destined to lose the stability that we have worked hard for throughout the U.S. However, gloomy considerations are readily put aside after considering a recent investigation by the International Monetary Fund into the real estate markets of other countries. It turns out that our national housing price-to-income ratio is fairly conservative. At this rate, we will soon stop talking about the process of housing recovery and just call it recovered.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending October 11:

• New Listings decreased 6.6% to 1,423
• Pending Sales increased 6.8% to 955
• Inventory increased 7.5% to 18,178

For the month of September:

• Median Sales Price increased 5.1% to $205,000
• Days on Market remained flat at 71
• Percent of Original List Price Received decreased 0.9% to 95.6%
• Months Supply of Inventory increased 15.8% to 4.4

School is back in session, the holidays are right around the corner, you might not think that now is the best time to sell your house.  But with inventory below historic numbers and demand still strong, you could be missing out on a great opportunity for your family.

1. Demand is Strong

Foot traffic refers to the number of people out actually physically looking at home right now. The latest foot traffic numbers show that there are more prospective purchasers currently looking at homes than at any other time in the last twelve months which includes the latest spring buyers’ market. These buyers are ready, willing and able to buy…and are in the market right now!

Every story needs a hero, and housing’s current starlet is (drum roll, please) inventory. More markets continue to see increases in homes for sale, giving buyers more options and keeping prices from trying to overshadow the popularity of inventory with unsustainable stardom. As autumnal extracurriculars pick up and department store decorations trend towards the mustard palate, sales may drop off some, but the subplots of normalization and stabilization should remain popular with year-over-year inventory increases in the leading role.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending October 4:

  • New Listings decreased 3.8% to 1,477
  • Pending Sales increased 1.7% to 1,063
  • Inventory increased 10.9% to 18,696

For the month of September:

  • Median Sales Price increased 5.1% to $205,000
  • Days on Market remained flat at 71
  • Percent of Original List Price Received decreased 0.9% to 95.6%
  • Months Supply of Inventory increased 15.8% to 4.4
