Twin Cities Area Housing Overview

With housing prices soaring and record-low inventory throughout much of the country, many prospective buyers have opted to rent for the time being, only to find conditions much the same in the rental market. Indeed, competition for rental properties is strong: the national median rent has increased 11.4% since January, and rent growth this year is surpassing the average growth over the same months from 2017 - 2019 in 98 out of the 100 largest cities in the nation, according to Apartment List. For the 12-month period spanning September 2020 through August 2021,

High sales prices and limited supply leave many prospective buyers no choice but to postpone their homes search in such a competitive market. Increased demand for housing, along with an improving economy, has competition for rental units soaring, and landlords are taking note, with the national median rent increasing 11.4% in 2021 so far, according to Apartment List.

In new construction, home builders continue to struggle to meet buyer demand, as housing starts nationwide dropped 7% last month, according to the Commerce Department. Single-family home construction declined 4.5%, and multi-family home construction, which includes condos and apartment buildings, was also down, falling by 13%. Labor shortages, rising material costs, and supply-chain setbacks continue to challenge builders, with some projects temporarily paused due to availability and cost of materials.

Now is one of the most favorable times in market history to sell a home and purchase a home at near record-low interest rates. The number of homes on the market indicates a 'seller's market' for home prices and low mortgage rates for home buyers. After experiencing the lowest mortgage interest rates, we do not expect a general uptick trend in interest rates in the near future. A slow and gradual rise in interest rates is realistic as the economy continues to improve. If the primary criteria is interest rates, this is the time to buy. Home loan rates continue to hover at all-time lows.
