Weekly insight:  Last week’s seller activity dropped 14.6 percent on average compared to this time in 2019. Although new listings in the more affordable price ranges decreased significantly, homes priced between $350-750K showed positive growth in this timeframe. Buyer activity remained level with respect to our last pre-pandemic reference week. Listings below $250K saw decreased interest while listings above this threshold grew in the number of signed purchase agreements. In particular, homes prices between $500-750K saw a 92.6 percent increase in average pending sales. Showing activity from last week declined, mostly for the affordably priced listings, but saw double digit gains in interest for listings priced above $300K. Market activity for the month of July indicated that both seller and buyer activity increased for listings above $250K. Demand outpaced supply in most of the price points above this figure. The 30-Year Fixed Rate Mortgage Average in the United States increased slightly, but remained below 3.0 percent for the past week.
