September 2019 Market Overview

With the kids back in school and the weather cooling, the housing market begins its annual cooldown as well. Nationally, buyer and seller activity remained strong, buoyed by low mortgage rates and a strong economy. The market fundamentals suggest no significant changes from recent trends, other than the seasonally tempered pace we see this time of year. As we move into the final three months of 2019, buyers will find fewer homes coming on the market, but also less competition for those homes.

New Listings were up 7.9 percent to 476. Pending Sales increased 41.8 percent to 451. Inventory shrank 8.6 percent to 2,133 units.

Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 4.8 percent to $325,000. Days on Market increased 8.5 percent to 141 days.

The lack of affordable inventory and the persistence of historically high housing prices continue to affect the housing market, leading to lower-than-expected existing home sales at the national level.

New Listings were down 11.0 percent to 600. Pending Sales increased 16.2 percent to 510. Inventory shrank 6.5 percent to
