Healthy buyer demand and constrained supply continue to be the story for much of the country. Nationally, showing activity in July remained substantially higher than a year before and multiple offer situations are a frequent experience in many markets. With the inventory of homes for sale still constrained, a competitive market for buyers shows little sign of waning.
New Listings decreased 0.7 percent for Single Family homes but increased 13.9 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes. Pending Sales increased 16.1 percent for Single Family homes and 4.5 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes. Inventory decreased 35.1 percent for Single Family homes and 1.6 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes.
Median Sales Price increased 8.5 percent to $385,000 for Single Family homes and 12.4 percent to $200,000 for Townhouse/Condo homes. Median Time to Contract decreased 8.6 percent for Single Family homes but increased 9.8 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes. Months Supply of Inventory decreased 33.3 percent for Single Family homes but increased 7.8 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes.
While the number of unemployment insurance weekly initial claims have been far lower in recent weeks than their peak in March and April, more than 1 million new claims are still being filed each week and more 31 million were claiming benefits in all programs as of early July, compared to fewer than 2 million in July 2019. Despite this significant economic impact, home buyers remain extremely resilient. With mortgage rates remaining near record-low levels and home purchase mortgage applications up from a year ago, high buyer activity is expected to continue into the late summer and early fall market.
