2021 Real Estate Market Update Week 19
2021 real estate market update week 19. New listings of single family homes were up. 294 this week compared to 236 the week before. We want to see increases every week. It will take a lot more than this to satisfy the amount of buyers that are out there looking. Prices will continue to rise until enough housing in all price ranges comes on the market or gets built.
Closed listings of single family homes were down. 266 this week compared to 278 the week before. They will rise as we get closer to the end of the month when most buyers want to close.

Closed column is the most important column. These are actual numbers. New and contracts accepted can be added more than once if a home gets listed more than once. Sometimes a contract will get accepted and it will not make it past the home inspection and attorney review so it get relisted and then gets another contract at a later time.

It is a great time to be a seller! Prices are increasing because there is not enough homes on the market. National Association of REALTORS® has said we are at a 50 year low for housing. We need more of all types of housing. Request a home valuation and tell us a little bit about your home. Let us know what updates you have completed recently. We will provide you with a net proceeds so you can see the expenses to sell. This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms.
Thinking about buying this year? Contact a loan officer with all your financial information and let them know to get you pre-approved. The market is moving so fast right now just getting prequalified is not enough. There is multiple offers on most homes and you want to show the seller that you are pre-approved.
