Happy Valentine’s Day to all who celebrate it! I would also like to wish my wife of 19 years a Very Happy Anniversary today!
The image above shows the numbers for the local real estate market from the last 7 days. I shared last week’s numbers on social media but decided to use this as an opportunity to also share them as an article here.
New Listings are a little bit lower than the numbers from last week. Since I am just beginning to observe these numbers, I don’t have a working theory on why they dropped. It’s possible that the holidays have impacted it, but I have no evidence to show that for certain.
New Contracts have also dropped since last week’s reporting. Again, further study is needed to get a handle on why that is. It could just be a natural fluctuation.
Closings are only down by 2. Closings are a function of contracts signed in the past. Duhhh…that’s obvious! They are a lagging indicator of contracts written anywhere from two to six weeks ago, typically, but could be from a longer or shorter timeframe.
Overall, things seem to be staying busy…lots of buyers looking, not nearly enough inventory on the market.
Remember, if you have a real estate need, whether buying or selling, give me a call or shoot me an email. It doesn’t matter if you are outside of my area, I can connect you with a Rockstar Real Estate Agent!
