Today, in the Calculated Risk Real Estate Newsletter: 2nd Look at Local Housing Markets in November
A brief excerpt: This is the second look at local markets in November. I’m tracking about 35 local housing markets in the US. Some of the 35 markets are states, and some are metropolitan areas. I’ll update these tables throughout the month as additional data is released.
Closed sales in November were mostly for contracts signed in September and October. Mortgage rates moved higher in September, and 30-year mortgage rates were over 7% for most of October (no points), and that likely impacted closed sales in November and December.
Here is a summary of active listings for these housing markets in November.
Inventory in these markets were down 35% YoY in January and are now up 87% YoY! So, this is a significant change from earlier this year, and a larger YoY inventory increase than in October (up 75% YoY).
