2018 1st Quarter Market Report: Home Sales Steady - Prices Continue to Rise

The 1st quarter of 2018 ended on a good note with March existing home sales only down slightly over last year, and with 2018 home sales expected to exceed 2017 excellent year. Home Prices in 2018 continue to rise, increasing 5.8% over the end of March last year.

The most notable change in the 1st quarter was an increase in seller activity. Our survey showed that in 46% of the markets surveyed there were still more buyers than sellers, but a decrease of 27% from March 2017. Additionally, 17% of our markets surveyed showed more seller activity than buyer activity, an increase of 8% over last year. The remaining 37% of the markets showed an equal amount of buyer and seller activity which was an increase of 19% over last year. The increased activity, however did not ease the tight inventory 73% of our markets showing a very tight supply of homes available for sale. Home prices are also on the rise with 86% of markets showing price appreciation in the last year.

According the National association of Realtors (NAR) existing home sales in March were down 1.2% over last year, but annual sales are expected to hit 5.6 million units compared to 5.1 million in 2017; inventory of unsold homes is at a 3.6 month supply and 46% of all homes sold in under one month.

The data in this report is generated primarily from our survey of exclusive member real estate agents across the United States. This grass roots approach to studying the housing market gives us a thorough look at where the real estate market is through the eyes and perspective of the local real estate agents who are living and working in the trenches of each community.

Buyer and Seller Activity
The trend in both buyer and seller activity is up significantly in the 1st quarter of 2018 compared to the buyer and seller activity from last year. Buyer activity is steady or increasing in 94% of the markets surveyed and decreased in only 6% of the markets surveyed indicating a significant 8% increase in activity from Spring 2017. Simultaneously the trend for seller activity posted a solid 10% gain in the 1st quarter of 2018 with 85% of the markets indicating steady or increased seller activity compared to 75% of the markets at this time in 2017. Despite increased seller activity there are still more buyers than sellers and homes are selling quickly. In fact, according to NAR inventories have decreased to 3.6 month supply compared to 3.8 months in March of 2017. A balanced "normal market" is considered to be a 6 month supply of homes for sale.
