February Single-Family Home Sales Statistical Highlights

Sales Surge: Residential Home Sales Spike 10.9%
February Median Home Sale Prices Increase – Up 3.2% Over 2018

Real Estate Market Commentary for February 2019:

It is worthwhile to mention the weather when discussing residential real estate for large portions of the U.S. for February 2019, because this month has turned in some impressively cold, rainy and snowy days that have stalled some buying and selling actions. Nevertheless, housing markets have proven to be resilient despite predictions of a tougher year for the industry. It is still too early to say how the entire year will play out, but economic fundamentals remain positive.

The National Association of REALTORS® recently reported that national existing-home sales were down slightly during January 2019 and that pending sales were up in year-over-year comparisons. It is worth noting that some softening of sales was anticipated, as was a positive sales bounce during January 2019 after a slow end to 2018. Weather-related events have hampered some of the necessary machinations of making home sales during February 2019, yet buyers have shown determination toward achieving their homeownership goals.

Single-Family Real Estate Quick Comparisons:

  • Across the combined categories of Residential and Condominium, Days on Market stayed the same Y-O-Y at an average of 52 days.
  • February saw an average of 7.4 showings per listing across the entire MLS. This was up slightly M-O-M from 6.7 in January and down slightly Y-O-Y from 8.8 in February 2018.
  • 3.6% of Residential and Condo On-Market listings are flagged as “lender mediated”. These listings include foreclosures and those marked as short sales. This percentage is unchanged M-O-M and down 1.1% Y-O-Y based on the recalculated percentage for February 2018 which is 4.7%.
