Weekly insight: Showing activity so far in 2021 remains elevated above 2019 and 2020 levels. That isn’t the case across each price tier—the segment with the largest decline in showings was under $200K, while homes priced between $250K-300K enjoyed the largest gain in showings. New listing activity in 2021 remains subdued and is currently below the prior three years. Meanwhile, the number of signed purchase agreements has matched 2020 activity, and remains above the previous three years. Rates on a 30-year fixed mortgage remain around 2.73 percent, which is near a 50+ year low. The lowest 30-year mortgage rate since 1970 is 2.65 percent.
