2021 market update week 5
2021 market update week 5. Slightly more listings of single family homes added this week. 128 this week compared to 120 the week before. Buyer’s are looking for so much more to hit the market. Especially more in each price range. Multiple offers are here until we see a big jump in homes coming on the market.
Closed listings of single family homes was slightly down. 146 this week compared to 159 the week before. The decrease from the end of January to the beginning of February was not that great. They should slightly increase from here to the end of the month.

Contracts accepted this week
Contracts accepted on single family homes this week was slightly higher. 251 this week compared to 246 the week before. These numbers would be so much higher if there were more homes on the market. It does not seem to matter what time of year it is like most years. Buyer’s have been looking and waiting for so long that they will grab a home when they can get it. It makes it kind of hard when you are working around a lease.

You will need 2 years of tax returns, pay stubs, bank statements, car payment and credit card information. If you have any other monthly payments you will need to have them too.
