This has proven to be a steady year for buying and selling activity in the residential real estate market.

  • New Listings decreased 14.7% to 747

For Week Ending November 26, 2016

National home prices reached a record high, increasing 0.1 percent from the pre-recession peak in 2006. This height – driven by low inventory, solid demand and responsible lending practices – is much different from the previous high mark. Inflation is also a factor. Interest rates, unemployment, prices and wage trends will continue to be factors to monitor for trend analysis as we reach toward 2017.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending November 26:

  • New Listings decreased 6.7% to 502
  • Pending Sales decreased 5.7% to 595
  • Inventory decreased 19.9% to 11,571

For the month of October:

  • Median Sales Price increased 6.5% to $230,000
  • Days on Market decreased 14.3% to 60
  • Percent of Original List Price Received increased 0.8% to 96.9%

For Week Ending November 19, 2016

With the holiday season in full swing, existing home sales rose for the second straight month to the highest they have been since 2007. This was unexpected, since prices are also at record highs and inventory is still consistently declining. As both incomes and employment figures continue to improve, it would be a welcome surprise to see sales trend higher through to the end of the year.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending November 19:

  • New Listings increased 10.9% to 950
  • Pending Sales increased 8.0% to 902
  • Inventory decreased 19.7% to 11,975

For the month of October:

  • Median Sales Price increased 6.5% to $230,000
  • Days on Market decreased 14.3% to 60
  • Percent of Original List Price Received increased 0.8% to 96.9%
  • Months Supply of Inventory decreased 21.2% to 2.6

The sudden elevation in mortgage rates after the election may throw a wrench into the market for both buyers and sellers. Affordability and inventory are already low, and rate spikes coupled with rising prices may keep buyers at bay. In return, potential sellers may forgo selling if they have to lower their asking prices. These are hypothetical situations, of course, and residential real estate is presently performing well.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending November 12:

  • New Listings decreased 3.8% to 986
  • Pending Sales decreased 2.7% to 857
  • Inventory decreased 19.0% to 12,334

For the month of October:

  • Median Sales Price increased 6.5% to $230,000
  • Days on Market decreased 14.3% to 60
  • Percent of Original List Price Received increased 0.8% to 96.9%
  • Months Supply of Inventory decreased 21.2% to 2.6
