Steady, Steady . . .

Last month we asked the question: Is the local real estate market changing? Based on the latest year over year (August 2020 compared to August 2021) statistics, our answer is still no, the market isn’t changing. For last month’s entire update, CLICK HERE

It might seem that the local demand from buyers is cooling off a hair, but as you can see from the chart, the number of homes listed for sale is still decreasing and the number of homes selling is increasing based on year over year numbers. At some point that trend will change, but for now we feel we are still in a very strong sellers market. 

The majority of homes are still going under contract within two weeks of being listed and the median sales price is up 12.1% since the beginning of this year. I would be surprised if that trend doesn’t continue when the numbers for the next couple of months are finalized. 

These statistics represent averages across Hampton Roads and your individual real estate needs might be different. If you are thinking about moving and you would like to discuss your personal real estate needs, please reply to this email, or give us a call (757-726-7653 for Lee, 757-434-9084 for Harry). We love talking real estate, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have questions.
