Weekly insight: Buyers once again took advantage of the wonderful weather and pushed showing activity to new highs. Recent showing activity over the last week has nearly eclipsed the peak from 2019, which didn’t occur until early May. Market activity continues to skew toward the upper price brackets. Showings rose the most on listings over $600K. The only segment with fewer showings is the under $250K bracket. To the dismay of buyers, seller activity remains subdued, with frustratingly few new listings entering the market. Rates on a 30-year fixed mortgage crept up slightly to around 3.05 percent, which is just a hair above the 50+ year low of 2.65 percent and well below the 50-year average rate of about 8.0 percent.
