Year-Over-Year Home Sales Slip 1.6% After Largest Inventory Decline in 13 Months

August 2019 existing home sales slipped 1.6% from a year ago, despite buyer demand exceeding available housing supply, according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report. Following July’s year-over-year sales increase of 2.3%, the slight August decline marks the sixth month of 2019 that produced fewer sales than 2018.

Buyer demand outpaced homes listed for sale in August, causing the largest inventory decline in 13 months. An analysis of the report's 53 metro areas shows August inventory shrank 5.5% year-over-year, the largest drop since 7.8% in July 2018. August’s inventory contraction followed July’s year-over-year inventory decline of 1.5% after nine consecutive months of year-over-year inventory growth. Months Supply of Inventory decreased to 2.8 compared to 2.9 in July 2019 and eclipsed the previous August low in the report’s 11-year history.

“The modest inventory growth that started last fall has been swallowed up by demand as buyers have returned to the market, likely spurred on by attractive interest rates,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “Home sales dipping at the same time inventory falls suggests there may have been some reluctance on the part of sellers to list their homes. Nevertheless, demand is again ahead of supply, extending the favorable seller’s market that has been in place for several years.” 

Inventory has remained below four months in 39 of the last 42 months, dating back to March 2016. Six months is considered a market balanced between sellers and buyers.  

Homes moved quickly and August saw a year-over-year price increase of 5.7%, further evidence of buyer demand. The August Days on Market total of 44 represented the second-fastest pace of August home sales in the report’s history. The previous record was set last August, when homes sold in an average of 43 days.

August weighed in as the eighth consecutive month of year-over-year price growth as the Median Sales Price rose to $263,000. Going back to February 2012, prices have increased year over year in 89 of the past 91 months.

Despite the favorable conditions for sellers, there were still a few encouraging signs for buyers in the last of 2019’s peak months for home sales:  
While home prices typically decline from July to August, the decrease of 3.6% was the steepest drop-off in report history from July to August.


Despite August’s significant year-over-year inventory shrinkage, the seasonal decline in inventory from July-to-August of 3.9% is on par with the 3.7% average since the RE/MAX National Housing Report began in August 2008.

RE/MAX National Housing Report for July 2019

b130

Home Sales Increase 2.4% in July, Ending Nine Months of Inventory Growth 

July home sales bounced back after a sluggish June by increasing 2.4% year over year, according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report. This was enough to end nine months of year-over-year inventory growth as the number of homes for sale declined 1.4%.

A drop in home sales from June to July is typical in the report's 53 metro areas. But the 0.2% decline from June to July 2019 was by far the smallest month-over-month decline since July 2013. And while June sales failed to top May for only the second time in the report's 10-year history, July sales set a report record for the month.

"July sales snapped back after a tepid June, as attractive low interest rates appear to have brought more buyers into the mix," said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. "The housing market has been a bit uneven since the early spring, with each encouraging month seemingly followed by one with lukewarm results. It's possible the housing market has finally shaken some mud off its boots and can maintain its momentum for the back half of the year. If the broader macro environment hangs on, we could see a potentially strong finish to 2019.”

July's Median Sales Price of $273,000 - while down slightly from June's all-time report record high - was 9.2% higher than July of 2018. It marked the seventh consecutive month of year-over-year price growth. Home prices have risen, year over year, in 88 of the last 90 months dating back to February 2012. Said Contos, "Although lower interest rates help affordability, we have now seen two straight months of accelerating price increases. If the trend continues, it's not an encouraging development for buyers.”

July's Days on Market total of 43 saw sales closing at the same rate as they did in June, but taking two days longer than in July 2018. Months of Inventory in July 2019 totaled 2.7, down compared to June's 2.9 and 3.3 in July 2018.

pelican 1553297 1920

 

May home sales ticked slightly higher year-over-year, ending a 9-month streak of declines, according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report. At the same time, inventory grew for the eighth consecutive month, representing the most units for sale since August 2016 in the report’s 54 metro areas.

Homes sold quickly, as evident in the Days on Market average of 47 – the second-fastest May average in the 10-year history of the report. And home sales increased 15.3% from April to May – the second-highest April-May jump in report history.

Home sales were up 0.4% over May 2018 - the first year-over-year gain since July 2018. The number of homes for sale increased 4.9% year-over-year to set a report record for the highest May growth. However, based on the pace of home sales, May’s 2.6 Months of Inventory was down compared to April’s 2.8 months and the 2.9 months of May 2018.

The Median Sales Price of $259,500 was up 3.4% year-over-year, representing the lowest May increase since 2011.

“The spring selling season was in full bloom during the month of May, offering both buyers and sellers something to like,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos.

RE/MAX National Housing Report for September 2018

Like the falling leaves of trees, September saw a tumble in year-over-year home sales according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report.

Here are three key takeaways from September’s Report.


1.) September sales dropped 11.6% year-over-year.
2.) Median sale prices rose to $241,000. That’s an increase for the 30th month in a row.
3.) Active inventory dropped 4.7% from September 2017. That’s the 119th month in a row to see fewer homes on the market.

The drop in sales drop does suggest that the market is rebalancing as buyers and sellers are processing higher interest rates. Prices are still high most likely because of the lack of homes that are on the market.  

Of course, these numbers represent a national sample. If you’re thinking about a transition or just interested in finding out what all of this means for the value of your property,  I’d be happy to talk to you about our local market.

RE/MAX National Housing Report for August 2018

Home Sales Decline 1% as Inventory, Prices Level Out

 

The RE/MAX National Housing Report for August 2018 shows increasing home prices, low inventory and a reduction in days on market. These combined factors made August 2018 the sixth time this year that home sales lagged behind last year’s pace—but only slightly at -1.1%. To access the housing report infographic, visit: https://rem.ax/2phKHWT

 

Home prices rose by 3.7% over August 2017, much lower than the year-over-year price increase of 5.4% from August 2016 to August 2017. In fact, the past three months of 2018 have trailed 2017’s rate of price growth year-over-year—compare that to four of the first five months of 2018 when year-over-year price increases easily topped those posted in 2017.

 

The Median Sales Price of $248,500 marked the 29th consecutive month of year-over-year price increases.

 

Even though active inventory dropped for the 118th consecutive month, the decline of 5.4% from August 2017 marked the smallest year-over-year decrease since August 2014. In addition, the August 2018 inventory drop marked the fourth consecutive month in 2018 to post single-digit percent declines, rather than the double-digit monthly drops consistently seen in early 2018 and over the previous three years.

 

“It varies by market, but we’re hearing that buyers are being more selective and sellers are becoming more pragmatic,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “That dynamic could bring inventory levels up, especially in the most overheated markets, where we expect to see the clearest signs of equilibrium returning. The economy is strong and potential buyers are out there—they just need more listings, at the right price points, to consider. We believe that balance will return, which will be good for everyone in the long run. It’s just a matter of when.” 

 

Contos added that although the lack of inventory continues to be a challenge, the trends suggest that the market finally appears to be rebalancing. “The moderation we are experiencing seems to be a bit more than the normal seasonal lull we’d expect this time of year,” said Contos.

RE/MAX Flagstaff Realtors Earn NAR’s Military Relocation Professional Certification!

 

annette and demi

Annette Gardinal & Demi Bentley with RE/MAX Flagstaff have been awarded the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional Certification. The National Association of Realtors® awards the MRP certification to Realtors® who help military personnel, veterans and their families find housing that lets them make the best use of their benefits and serves the unique needs of military life.

When military staff and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster and less stressful. Realtors® who earn this certification know to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans.

“Service members may only have a couple of days to view properties and make an offer, and others might be deployed at the time and need someone who can represent them while they’re away. Working with a Realtor® who understands the singular complications that arise with military service can help make the home buying process simpler, faster and less stressful,” said National Association of Realtors® President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs, Florida. “The MRP certification lets home buyers and sellers know that a Realtor® knows the ins and outs of military housing benefits, such as zero-down payment loans, and the specific needs service members and veterans have when searching for their new home.”

The certification provides NAR’s members with resources to accommodate current and former military service members at any stage of their military career and is an approved elective for NAR’s Accredited Buyers Representative designation. To earn the MRP certification, Realtors must be in good standing with NAR; complete the MRP Certification Core Course; complete a reading providing background information on the military, included acronyms and understanding military culture; and complete two webinars.

For more information about the MRP certification, visit www.militaryrelocationpro.org

RE/MAX June 2018 National Housing Report

Halfway through 2018, prices are at record highs, inventory is at record lows and home sales are trailing 2017’s pace, according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report.

June sales were 5.5% lower than June 2017 in the 54 metro areas surveyed, marking the seventh consecutive month of year-over-year declines.

Headed in the opposite direction, the June Median Sales Price of $258,500 was an all-time high in the nine-year history of the report. It was 5.1% higher than the $245,000 recorded last June, bringing the consecutive months of year-over-year price increases to 27. In each of the previous five years – going back to June 2013’s $193,750 – June has posted the highest Median Sales Price of the year.

“Year-over-year prices have been climbing for more than two years now, which is great news for homeowners and sellers,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “In the hottest markets, demand is especially high because there simply aren’t that many homes for sale. The slower sales figures we’re seeing are tied to inventory more than anything else.”

Forty-two of the 54 metro areas reported a year-over-year drop in inventory. That years-long trend is reflected in Months Supply of Inventory dropping to 2.7 – down 8.8% year-over-year and the smallest figure ever recorded for June. Fewer houses for sale generally results in a faster process: Homes sold in June averaged just 42 Days on Market – five days less than June 2017 and three days under the previous nine-year low of 45 days (July 2017).

“Lack of inventory has become a theme for the year,” Contos said. “Having fewer homes to choose from poses a challenge for buyers, who need to be ready to act decisively and quickly. Working with a full-time, professional RE/MAX agent can prepare them for that.”

April RE/MAX National Housing Report

April showers bring inventory struggles. As the inventory story continues, so does the decline of home sales and rising prices according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report. Home sales have declined for the fourth month in a row. For the 24th consecutive month, home prices have gone up! Why? Because of the number of homes on the market is at a record low. You can read all of the details in the full housing report here.

What’s all this mean for you? If you’re selling, it continues to be your market. Homes that are on the market are selling fast and generally at a higher price. If you’re buying, there’s still good news despite the low inventory. March recorded the second-highest month in sales in the history of the RE/MAX National Housing Report. I’d be happy to help you navigate the market to find your home.

February RE/MAX National Housing Report

The February RE/MAX National Housing Report shows that buyers may not be waiting for the typical spring selling season to begin! While home sales were down just slightly, year-over-year, houses for sale didn’t spend much time sitting on the market. Are you ready to make a speedy home sale or purchase? 

 

We typically have to wait until March or even April to see the housing market begin to heat up. But with a record number of January home sales, it seems things are kicking into gear early this year. Here are key points from February’s report:

 

1. Homes are still selling fast

The average Days on Market for homes sold in January 2018 was 60, up three days from the average in December 2017, and down six days from the January 2017 average.

 

2. Prices continue to rise

The median sales price of a home sold in January was $224,000. That’s nearly 7 percent higher than the median sales price in January 2017.

 

3. Homes for sale are still in short supply

We still need more homes for sale.  The number of homes for sale in January 2018 was down 4.8% from December 2017, and down 14.8% from January 2017.

 

4. Slightly fewer transactions occurred

Of the 53 metro areas surveyed in January 2018, the overall average number of home sales decreased 27.4% compared to December 2017 and decreased 2.8% compared to January 2017. But we’re already starting to see the selling season heat up and whether you’re planning to buy or sell or both, now’s the time to contact an agent.
