Call it the result of a resolution or the promise of something new, but it is a noted phenomenon across the country. It’s really too early to say if the trend will continue in 2018, but the first weeks of the year have not necessarily shown a huge jolt in activity so much as the last weeks of 2017 were quieter than usual.

As we embark upon the 2018 campaign, watch for upward movement in some of the same areas for wanted improvements in 2017. The number of homes available for sale continues to be a key factor in the dynamics of residential real estate. Simply put, it would be good to have more inventory available for purchase. Buying a home is a viable and exciting option for many consumers, and having more homes to choose from is one way to assure that the dream of homeownership is an affordable achievement.

For Week Ending December 30, 2017

As we close the books on 2017, it is clear that there is an ongoing national housing shortage. Year-over-year inventory levels have been down in most markets for several years now, and that trend is expected to persist in 2018. Even if there are occasional increases in the number of homes for sale from week to week, home supply is too low to achieve a balanced market. That said, consumers are most definitely purchasing homes quickly and often above asking price. Demand is strong, and there is plenty to feel optimistic about in 2018.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending December 30:

  • New Listings decreased 37.7% to 243
  • Pending Sales decreased 8.7% to 451
  • Inventory decreased 24.6% to 7,712

For the month of November:

  • Median Sales Price increased 6.5% to $245,000
  • Days on Market decreased 11.1% to 56
  • Percent of Original List Price Received increased 0.8% to 97.4%
  • Months Supply of Inventory decreased 21.7% to 1.8

All comparisons are to 2016

It has been another steady year for buying and selling residential real estate. The primary trends of inventory decline and price increase continued, and more of the same is anticipated in 2018 if consumer, employer and builder confidence remain high. Tweaks in tax law and mortgage rates could create either unwanted or desirable effects, depending on the market. Trend lines may flatten or turn, but it’s too soon to say exactly what will happen.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending December 16:

  • New Listings increased 9.0% to 641
  • Pending Sales decreased 1.3% to 752
