Market Report - March 2022


Nationally, existing home sales recently dropped to a 6-month low, falling 7.2% as buyers struggled to find a home amid rising prices and historic low inventory. Pending sales are also down, declining 4.1% as of last measure, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. Builders are working hard to ramp up production—the U.S. Census Bureau reports housing starts are up 22.3% compared to a year ago—but higher construction costs and increasing sales prices continue to hamper new home sales, despite high demand for additional supply.


New Listings were down 7.1 percent to 816. Pending Sales decreased 28.3 percent to 655. Inventory shrank 25.6 percent to 500 units.


Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 23.6 percent to $467,500. Days on Market decreased 11.3 percent to 102 days. Months Supply of Inventory was down 10.0 percent to 0.9 months.


Across the country, consumers are feeling the bite of inflation and surging mortgage interest rates, which recently hit 4.6% in March, according to Freddie Mac, rising 1.4 percent since January and the highest rate in more than 3 years. Monthly payments have increased significantly compared to this time last year, and as housing affordability declines, an increasing number of would-be homebuyers are turning to the rental market, only to face similar challenges as rental prices skyrocket and vacancy rates remain at near-record low.
