Twin Cities Area Housing Overview

Nationally the housing market experienced rising inflation, soaring home prices, and increased mortgage interest rates have combined to cause a slowdown in the U.S. housing market. To help quell inflation, which reached 8.6% as of last measure in May, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by three quarters of a percentage point in June, the largest interest rate hike since 1994. Higher prices, coupled with 30-year fixed mortgage rates approaching 6%, have exacerbated affordability challenges and rapidly cooled demand, with home sales and mortgage applications falling sharply from a year ago.

Record-high home prices and surging mortgage interest rates are taking their toll on America's homebuilders, with builder confidence falling for the sixth consecutive month in June and dropping to its lowest level in two years, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Buyer traffic is down, and as construction costs increase and housing affordability declines, construction on new homes is slowing, reflecting concerns among builders about current and future sales of new single­ family homes in the months ahead.

With monthly mortgage payments up more than 50% compared to this time last year, the rising costs of homeownership have sidelined many prospective buyers. Nationally, the median sales price of existing homes recently exceeded $400,000 for the first time ever, a 15% increase from the same period a year ago, according to the National Association of REALTORS. As existing home sales continue to soften nationwide, housing supply is slowly improving, with inventory up for the second straight month. In time, price growth is expected to moderate as supply grows; for now, however, inventory remains low, and buyers are feeling the squeeze of higher prices all around.

In the Twin Cities market inventory levels were up 9.8 percent and the overall Median Sales Price was up 8.6 percent to $380,000.  The property type with the largest price gain was the Townhomes segment, where prices increased 10.4 percent to $276,000. The price range that tended to sell the quickest was the $250,001 to $350,000 range at 22 days; the price range that tended to sell the slowest was the $1,000,001 and Above range at 70 days.

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.
