Sales have been brisk this summer, as the largest living generation in the U.S., the Millennials, enters the housing market in droves. Student loan debt is still a hindrance for many, but that has often been offset by continued low rates allowing for lower monthly mortgage payments. With rents on the rise, conditions for further sales are good, although, traditionally, the second half of summer is not as active as the first half.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending July 9:

  • New Listings decreased 23.2% to 1,649
  • Pending Sales decreased 20.4% to 1,033
  • Inventory decreased 18.5% to 14,104

For the month of June:

  • Median Sales Price increased 5.3% to $242,000
  • Days on Market decreased 16.7% to 55

The United Kingdom vote for exit from the European Union (Brexit) has likely already had at least one short-term effect on the U.S. housing market. The decision to not raise interest rates until later this year was likely made because of Brexit, so unrest in financial markets can be watched further with hopes of stabilization. Long-term effects may include more or less foreign investment in U.S. residential real estate, but wholesale price declines are not expected any time soon.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending July 2:

  • New Listings increased 24.2% to 1,589
  • Pending Sales increased 12.9% to 1,351
  • Inventory decreased 17.7% to 14,480

For the month of June:

  • Median Sales Price increased 5.3% to $242,000

For Week Ending June 25, 2016

As we know, declining inventory has been the central focus of real estate news throughout the first half of the year. The lack of options of homes for sale seems to be keeping many from selling and instead, staying and renovating. This, in turn, leads to a lack of starter homes for first-time buyers. Sales are still climbing ever upward, and low mortgage rates continue to aid affordability.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending June 25:

  • New Listings increased 2.2% to 1,907
  • Pending Sales decreased 6.0% to 1,336
  • Inventory decreased 19.0% to 14,294

For the month of May:

  • Median Sales Price increased 5.8% to $236,900
  • Days on Market decreased 21.1% to 60
  • Percent of Original List Price Received increased 1.1% to 98.6%
  • Months Supply of Inventory decreased 26.3% to 2.8

All comparisons are to 2015
