Optimistic housing start stats encourage rumors that 2014 should be another year of recovering. Activity may not be volatile enough to garner bold headlines, which suits residential real estate markets just fine. The steady-as-she-goes pace and quietly consistent good news should bring out a few more previously underwater sellers to list their homes. Keep an eye out for fresh inventory and keen interest from hungry buyers.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending January 25:

• New Listings decreased 11.9% to 914
• Pending Sales decreased 13.0% to 663
• Inventory decreased 8.6% to 12,050

For the month of December:

• Median Sales Price increased 13.1% to $190,000
• Days on Market decreased 20.4% to 86

Weekly Real Estate Update
January 27, 2014

Some say the big story of 2014 will be higher interest rates, some say it will be more inventory while others say it will be less foreclosure activity. The truth is likely to be an amalgamation of all of the above. The year 2013 was marked by variable but steady job growth, a good leading indicator of market activity. While consumers may be uneasy about higher rates, economic improvements can potentially offset any negative impact on affordability. The seasoned agent will recall a time when plenty of consumers were vying for properties when rates were double and triple what they are now.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending January 18:

• New Listings decreased 8.3% to 989
• Pending Sales decreased 24.8% to 591
• Inventory decreased 9.5% to 11,918

For the month of December:

• Median Sales Price increased 13.1% to $190,050

• Days on Market decreased 20.4% to 86
• Percent of Original List Price Received increased 1.0% to 94.7%
• Months Supply of Inventory decreased 15.6% to 2.7

Weekly Real Estate Update

A pendulum spends little time in the middle. It tends to over swing center and hang out at the extreme before changing directions. Apply that to housing. Two or three years ago, almost no one would have foreshadowed concern over affordability, yet that’s what some are cautioning against in an environment of rising prices and interest rates. It would take further increases to truly rattle confidence and sentiment, but it’s wise to monitor the market recovery’s dual-edged saber.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending September 7:

• New Listings increased 18.6% to 1,511
• Pending Sales decreased 4.5% to 857
• Inventory decreased 8.9% to 15,891

For the month of August:

• Median Sales Price increased 16.9% to $207,900
• Days on Market decreased 34.0% to 70
• Percent of Original List Price Received increased 2.0% to 97.0%
• Months Supply of Inventory decreased 18.2% to 3.6
