As we enter Spring we have already seen a jump in the number of new listings to the market and we can expect that this will continue to rise. However based on the demand that we are seeing, the number of active listings may not actually increase as properties are not staying as long on the market as they were this time last year. Pending transactions as of April 6th is 189! The market is fairly balanced right now with the months supply just over 6 months (see what this means here). It is important to note that the above figures are just a snapshot and there is considerable variation depending on property type, location and price point.

National Real Estate Market

The upward national price trend that began in first quarter 2012 continues… The latest S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index reported a 5.9% annual gain in January, up from 5.7% the previous month. David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices says “Housing and home prices continue on a generally positive upward trend.” He goes on to note that a mortgage rate rise of less than a quarter percent is expected in the near future however “given the market’s current strength and the economy, the small increase in interest rates isn’t expected to dampen home buying. If we see three or four additional increases this year, rising mortgage rates could become concern.”
