Twin Cities Area Housing Overview

Nationally, existing home sales recently dropped to a 6-month low, falling 7.2% as buyers struggled to find a home amid rising prices and historic low inventory. Pending sales are also down, declining 4.19% as of last measure, according to the National Association of Realtors. Builders are working hard to ramp up production--the U.S. Census Bureau reports housing starts are up 22.3% compared to a year ago--but higher construction costs and increasing sales prices continue to hamper new home sales, despite high demand for additional supply.

Millennials are entering the housing market at a record pace, fueling demand and driving sales prices higher amid an epic housing shortage. Currently, millennials represent 22% of the U.S. population but make up 43% of the current market share, according to a survey by the National Association of Realtors. With nearly a quarter of the population approaching their peak earning years over the next two decades, this new generation of homebuyers are expected to have a big impact on the economy-and on the housing market--in the years to come.

Across the country, consumers are feeling the bite of inflation and surging mortgage interest rates, which recently hit 4.6% in March, according to Freddie Mac, rising 1.4 percent since January and the highest rate in more than 3 years. Monthly payments have increased significantly compared to this time last year, and as housing affordability declines, an increasing number of would-be homebuyers are turning to the rental market, only to face similar challenges as rental prices skyrocket and vacancy rates remain at near-record low.

Twin Cities Market-wide, inventory levels were down 12.1 percent. The property type that lost the least inventory was the Single-Family Detached segment, where it decreased 10.0 percent. That amounts to 0.9 months supply for Single-Family Detached homes, 0.9 months supply for Townhomes and 1.9 months supply for Condos.s.

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.
