March Market Trends

Local real estate markets remained strong during March. New listings, homes sold, and prices were mostly up year-over-year in March. The inventory of homes remains at historically low levels in most communities.  Interest rates have also slowly dropped to near-record lows: 3.75% for 30-year jumbo loans.  This has created an uptick in buyer demand this spring.  Currently, multiple offers are the norm and home prices are rising.  I expect this to continue into the summer, when the market traditionally takes a breather.  Kids are out of schools and mid-June to early August is all about vacations.
