Latest Realty News from NAR

In Which States Did Properties Sell Quickly in September 2018?

In a monthly survey of REALTORS®, respondents reported that properties were typically on the market for 32 days (34 days on year ago), according to the  September 2018 REALTORS® Confidence Index Survey.[1]  However, the difference in median days in the current month compared to the same month last year has started to narrow as homebuying demand has eased and the inventory of homes for sale has slightly increased. In January and February of this year, properties were selling about one week less compared to the length of time in the same period one year ago.

During the July–September 2018, properties typically sold within one month in 27 states (32 states in August 2018).  Properties sold most quickly in South Dakota (20 days), Idaho (21), Washington (21 days), Rhode Island (21 days), Indianapolis (22 days), Kansas (23), Massachusetts (23), Ohio (23), Utah (23), Colorado (24), Nevada (24), Nebraska (24), Maine (24), and Michigan (24).  

That properties are still selling faster compared to one year ago is an indication that the supply of homes for sale is still inadequate compared to the demand for homes. Based on the REALTORS® Seller Traffic Index[2], home selling conditions were “weak” during July, August, and September 2018 compared to one year ago in the District of Columbia and in 28 states including California, Oregon, Colorado, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida.

 


[1] In generating the median days on market at the state level, NAR uses data for the last three surveys to have close to 30 observations. Small states such as AK, ND, SD, MT, VT, WY, WV, DE, and D.C., may have fewer than 30 observations.

[2] An index greater than 50 means that more respondents reported conditions relative to one year ago as “strong” than those that reported “weak.” Due to sampling, we categorize the index as “very weak” for 0 to 25; “weak” for values 25+ to 45; “stable” for values 45+ to 55; “strong” for values 55+ to 75; and “very strong” for values 75+.

September 2018 Housing Affordability Index

At the national level, housing affordability is up from last month but down from a year ago. Mortgage rates rose to 4.77 percent this September, up 14.9 percent compared to 4.15 percent a year ago.

  • Housing affordability declined from a year ago in September moving the index down 8.4 percent from 160.1 to 146.7. The median sales price for a single family home sold in September in the US was $260,500 up 4.6 percent from a year ago.
  • Nationally, mortgage rates were up 62 basis point from one year ago (one percentage point equals 100 basis points).

  • The payment as a percentage of income was down to 17 percent this September but up from 15.6 percent from a year ago. Regionally, the West has the highest payment at 23.7 percent of income. The South had the second highest payment at 16.5 percent followed by the Northeast at 16.4 percent. The Midwest had the lowest payment as a percentage of income at 13.5 percent.

  • Regionally, the West recorded the biggest increase in home prices at 7.0 percent. The Northeast had an increase of 5.3 percent while the South had a gain of 4.2 percent. The Midwest had the smallest growth in price of 2.2 percent.
  • Regionally, all four regions saw a decline in affordability from a year ago. The Northeast had the biggest drop in affordability of 9.0 percent. The South had a decline of 7.3 percent followed by the West that fell 6.8 percent. The Midwest had the smallest drop of 5.8 percent.
  • On a monthly basis, affordability is up from last month in all of the four regions. The Northeast had biggest gain of 5.5 percent. The Midwest had an incline of 4.2 percent followed by the South with an increase of 2.3 percent. The West had the smallest gain in affordability of 1.9 percent.
  • Despite month-to-month changes, the most affordable region was the Midwest, with an index value of 185.3. The least affordable region remained the West where the index was 105.4. For comparison, the index was 151.4 in the South, and 152.3 in the Northeast.

  • Mortgage applications are currently down. Mortgage rates are rising and home price growth is starting to slow down. Despite higher mortgage rates, lower home prices and increases inventory levels will help renters and potential home buyers enter the housing market. Home prices are up 4.6 percent outpacing median family incomes that are growing 3.1 percent.
  • What does housing affordability look like in your market? View the full data release here.
  • The Housing Affordability Index calculation assumes a 20 percent down payment and a 25 percent qualifying ratio (principal and interest payment to income). See further details on the methodology and assumptions behind the calculation here.

Testimonials

Nathan represented me buying my very first home. When initially looking for properties, he went above and beyond to provide information on homes that suited my needs and met my budget. Ultimately, Nathan found a property that is PERFECT for me that I may not have otherwise known was on the market. He was kind, honest, patient, and knowledgeable throughout the entire process (despite my endless questions). I could not have asked for more from a realtor and will be recommending friends and family. Heather
Robin & Donna, We want to thank you both so very much for all of your hard work in finding our forever home. The two of you were our first contacts in Virginia and no matter what we asked or how many houses we wanted to see, you always went above and beyond our expectations... Always with a smile, advice, and encouragement. We could not have asked for a better home buying experience and we consider you both friends and not just real estate agents. Thank you so much for finding us the perfect home and for helping us begin living our Virginia dream! Tom & Chris
Robin and Nathan, We couldn’t be more pleased with the photos and the descriptions. We looked very hard for something to correct or change and couldn’t find a thing! Outstanding pictures (Which was hard to do when all of the rooms look the same with no furniture in them!) Everything looks great and we now have no doubt we made the right decision in picking our Realtor and her team. Thomas
Nathan was an exceptional agent for me from the start! He had already done his homework (within just a few hours) with a possible listing price before seeing the property. In addition, he took excellent photos of my home; going the extra mile to remove "junk" from the various rooms before taking photos to make my place look even better! He contacted everyone for me (lawyer, pest inspection, contractor, etc) and all I needed to do was relax and let him do the work! To top things off, my home had a contract within 6 days of listing! If you're looking for an agent that will do the work for you and go the extra mile, then Nathan Gochenour is your man! Highly recommended! Shelby
In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as the Skyline Team. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend their service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us! James
