Σε εκείνους που σκέπτονται πως η Ελλάδα σήμερα δεν έχει καμία σημασία ας μου επιτραπεί να πω ότι δεν θα μπορούσαν να κάνουν μεγαλύτερο λάθος. Η σημερινή, όπως και η παλιά Ελλάδα, έχει υψίστη σημασία για οποιονδήποτε ψάχνει να βρει τον εαυτό του.

Homes Sell at Fast Pace for 8th Month in a Row in Oct

15 Nov, 2021

Realtor.com: Homes sold in the 50 biggest U.S. metros at an average of 39 days.

New housing data shows 2021’s home sales broke a yearly record in October, even as fall sales activity followed a steadier seasonal pattern, according to Realtor.com®’s latest Monthly Housing Report.

With last month marking the eighth straight month of buyers snatching up homes more quickly than the fastest pace in previous years and fewer new sellers entering the market than last year, inventory took a slight step back from recent months’ improvements.

“The year may be winding down, but 2021’s feverish pace of home sales continues to hit new records. Despite returns to more typical pre-COVID seasonality, which means a slower fall versus summer season, October housing data suggests that demand is still unseasonably high,” said Realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale.

She added, “A number of factors could be enabling buyers to persist, including rising mortgage rates and surging rental prices. Looking at the bigger picture of the pandemic, increased adoption of technology could be playing a key role in helping buyers move further along in the process virtually. With these ‘serious searchers’ – some of whom have been planning to buy since before the pandemic – better prepared to jump on new listings quickly and keeping inventory tight, mismatched supply and demand will continue to challenge buyers eager to move on to the next phase of life.”

2021’s feverish pace of home sales hits eighth month record

Fall buyers have a few more days to make decisions relative to the competitive spring and summer, but home shoppers still need to be prepared to act quickly. In each month from March-October 2021, the typical U.S. home spent fewer days on market than in the fastest-selling month in 2016-2020.

Additionally, homes sold within a month or less in nearly one-quarter of the 50 largest U.S. markets, while buyers in just four metros saw an increase in time on market in October.

The typical U.S. home spent 45 days on market in October, moderating slightly from last month’s pace (43 days.) However, homes still sold more quickly than in any October in recent history, including 2020 (-8 days) and 2019 (-21 days).

Relative to national time on market in October, homes sold at a faster pace in the 50 largest U.S. metros in October, at an average of 39 days (-8 days year-over-year).

The South continued to lead in yearly declines in time on market (-10 days) by region and in terms of the top five fastest selling metros compared to last year, which were: Miami (-31 days), Raleigh (-30 days), Jacksonville (-17 days), Orlando (-17 days) and Memphis (-16 days).

Inventory improvements stall

The number of homes for sale in the U.S. continues to lag, reflecting the mismatch of strong buyer demand with more typical fall seller activity levels. While October saw fewer new sellers than last year, a number of factors suggest that buyers are still relatively active, including the record-fast home sales pace. Additionally, on realtor.com, every month in 2021 since January has seen a higher number of pending listings – where the seller has already gone under contract with a buyer – than active listings, or those without a contract.

With buyers still searching, the majority of for-sale homes already under contract and fewer new listings coming onto the market in October, active inventory took a step back from yearly improvements seen since June.

The active inventory gap from last year shrunk slightly in October (-21.9%) over last month (-22.2%), but saw a smaller improvement than from June (-43.1%) to July (-33.5%). Compared to 2019, there are fewer than half (-51.9%) as many homes for-sale nationwide.

Nationally, new listings declined 2.3% from 2020 in October, with the biggest drops registered in the northeast (-8.5%) and west (-8.0%). While big metros saw smaller new seller declines than last month, new listings remain 11.6% lower in 2017-2019.

From February-October of this year, the supply of actively-listed homes on realtor.com was outpaced by pending inventory, or listings that are under contract. This is the opposite of what occurred in a typical month from 2017-2019. Although the gap is shrinking from the peak difference seen in May (197,355), there were still 5,975 more pending than active listings nationwide in October.

Across the 50 biggest U.S. markets, active inventory declined by an average of 20.5% year-over-year and new listings were down 4.8% in October.

More new sellers entered the market than last year in over one-third (17) of big metros, with newly-listed homes posting double-digit gains in Austin (+15.3%), Memphis (+14.8%), Buffalo, N.Y. (+10.7%) and Jacksonville, Fla. (+10.3%).

However, there were fewer new sellers than last year in the majority of big metros in October, with new listings declining at a double-digit pace in markets like Raleigh (-15.8%). With the typical Raleigh home selling in just 19 days, the metro’s supply of active inventory remains at less than half of last year’s levels (-50.7%).

Sellers continue to ask for near-record high prices as home price gains continue

For the third straight month, the U.S. median listing price remained near record-highs and steadily increased at a strong single-digit pace in October. Price gains continue moderating from the double-digit pace seen earlier this year, a potential indication that the housing market is transitioning toward a more sustainable long-term growth pace. However, the spring and summer frenzy has made a lasting impact on affordability challenges as buyers continue to quickly buy up the tight inventory of existing homes, fewer new sellers enter the market and the new home supply gap widens.

The U.S. median listing price was $380,000 in October, remaining near July’s record-high for the third month in a row. National listing price growth also held steady at a high single-digit pace, up 8.6% year-over-year in October.

National listing price growth has been moderating from the double-digit pace seen earlier this year. However, this largely reflects a shift in the mix of for-sale inventory, with yearly median listing price growth for a typical 2,000 square-foot single family home still at double-digits in October (+16.7%). Additionally, the share of sellers making listing price adjustments[1] still lags behind 2018-2019 levels, despite growing 0.8% year-over-year in October.

The 50 largest U.S. markets saw a slight uptick in annual listing price growth in October, increasing by an average of 5.2% versus last month’s rate of 4.1%. The western (+9.7%) and southern regions (+9.4%) led the nation in annual listing price gains, up by at least 18% in metros like Austin (+35.2%), Las Vegas (+27.2%), Tampa (21.8%), Orlando (+20.0%) and Denver (+18.3%).

Methodology: Realtor.com’s housing data as of October 2021. Listings include an active inventory of existing single-family homes and condos/townhomes for the given level of geography; new construction is excluded unless listed via the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Price adjustments are defined as home listings that had their price reduced in October 2021. Listings that had their prices increased during the month are excluded.
