New listings of single family homes was down this week.  221 this week compared to 256 the week before.  So many people are getting the kids in school this past week.  It is a big adjustment especially for the kids that did not attend in-person school last year.  Hopefully things will settle down and get back to thinking about housing.

Closed listings of single family homes were also down.  273 this week compared to 299 the week before.  This is the last full week of the month.  Monday and Tuesday the last days of the month.  We are back to scheduling things around school.  During last year with the pandemic, and kids not attending in-person classes, people were not worrying about the school schedule.

More homes have been closed this year than the previous 2 years even with a tighter market.  You can see the steady decline in new listings.  Normally, August is the best month for closings right before school starts.  This year it was June.  It has been a really hard year for buyer’s.  They have had so much competition for homes and not many to choose from.  Prices have gone up so much that some have been priced out of the market.  We hope inventory will improve.

Do you want to buy a home this year?  You need to contact a loan office that is willing to pre approve you before you find the home.  You need to get them all your financial information.  Pre-qualifying just is not enough anymore.  You need to be ready to go with a letter in hand to go with an offer.  A seller will not consider you without it.  You might also need to show proof of funds.  You can have your financial institution write a letter showing you do have the funds available for the down payment and closing costs.  That might even improve your chances if there is multiple offers.
