Weekly Market Report

For Week Ending August 31, 2019

Recent mortgage rate declines may provide a small tailwind as we enter the fall housing market, giving buyers a bit more buying power and a little more incentive to lock in a home purchase. However, stock market volatility and concern of a wider economic slowdown in the coming year may temper some buyer enthusiasm. But as rents continue to rise, the value proposition of owning a home remains a compelling option and a goal of most Americans.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending August 31:

  • New Listings increased 4.9% to 1,359
  • Pending Sales decreased 3.1% to 1,250
  • Inventory decreased 4.4% to 12,498
