Weekly Market Activity Report 7.28.08

By MAAR on Monday, July 28th, 2008

180pxnewyorkslice In the Twin Cities housing market, sales are flat like a New York pizza and supply is down like grandma’s comforter. Fortunately for us, the data confirms our kitschy similes. Pending sales for the week ending July 19 are ahead of the same week last year by 3.8 percent, while new listings fell by 13.0 percent for the same time period—all positive signs of a market in transition.

The total number of active listings for sale currently sits at 33,410, (comfortably) down 1,722 units—or 4.9 percent—from this time last year. Since the number of new homes coming on the market remains in decline and sales appear to have hit bottom, we can expect total inventory to remain lower than last year for some time to come.
