February 2022 Numbers ~ Neighborhood Report


Overview/Fluctuations ~  Market Data February 2022:               

In the first two months of 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021, New Listings have decreased 3.6%, Pending Sales have slightly increased at 0.6% and Closed Sales decreased 1.0%. Supply is still the drama queen affecting the local market and remains at historic lows, meaning Buyers are in heavy competition over what’s available. The other factor is rates. They are going to be going up, and not likely coming back down as low as they’ve been anytime soon, so if you’re wanting to purchase a home, it would be a good idea not to put it off.

Rates: “We have seen extreme volatility in the markets over the last few weeks. Right now 30-year fixed rates stand at about 4.125%.”Gary Boyer, Regional VP, Directors Mortgage
