The trends of higher sales and fewer homes for sale that prevailed through the first quarter of 2016 have only gotten stronger through the second quarter. Although more sellers are listing than at this time last year, it’s still not quite enough to keep up with the heat of today’s sales environment. Buyers appear to be making great offers ahead of any hint of higher mortgage rates.

  • New Listings increased 2.5% to 1,734
  • Pending Sales increased 18.6% to 1,597
  • Inventory decreased 18.8% to 13,669

Housing has been a strong sector of the nation’s economy over the past few years, but new construction has not been growing with demand so far in 2016. Low inventory and rising prices continue to be the trends to watch. As long as the local economy stays in growth mode and aging millennials choose to buy over renting, the market should remain on an extended path of stability.

  • New Listings increased 16.7% to 2,199
  • Pending Sales increased 10.4% to 1,613

  • Days on Market decreased 14.1% to 73

The U.S. housing market continues to churn out positive year-over-year sales numbers, but some markers of hesitation are worth watching. Some sellers hesitate to list their homes because they are not sure that they will find an attractive replacement for their own fast-selling home. Many young consumers, saddled with student loan debt and having transient tendencies, hesitate to commit to a home purchase longer than previous generations. Nevertheless, home starts are on the rise, and the market remains strong during the busiest weeks of the year.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending May 14:

  • New Listings decreased 3.0% to 2,120
  • Pending Sales increased 9.2% to 1,607
  • Inventory decreased 18.4% to 13,344

For the month of April:

  • Median Sales Price increased 7.8% to $231,750
  • Days on Market decreased 14.1% to 73
  • Percent of Original List Price Received increased 1.0% to 98.0%
  • Months Supply of Inventory decreased 25.0% to 2.7
