For Week Ending July 9, 2016

Sales have been brisk this summer, as the largest living generation in the U.S., the Millennials, enters the housing market in droves. Student loan debt is still a hindrance for many, but that has often been offset by continued low rates allowing for lower monthly mortgage payments. With rents on the rise, conditions for further sales are good, although, traditionally, the second half of summer is not as active as the first half.

  • New Listings decreased 23.2% to 1,649
