Central Maryland October Housing Report

Central Maryland October Housing Report

The Central Maryland October Housing Report shows that Median listing prices continue to grow at 12.9 percent over last year.

Economists, market watchers, and most especially buyers have been looking for signs of a slowdown in the housing market that has been red hot since its post-pandemic recovery. So far, at least, the median listing price continues to defy gravity.

New listings were down 12 percent. The new listings trend took another step back this week. Earlier in the year, new listings growth was tied closely to the prevalence of coronavirus spread in various housing markets. The second week of larger declines in new sellers could be related to rising new coronavirus cases.

Total inventory was down 39 percent. After five steady weeks at 38 percent, the total number of homes available for sale shrank by a slightly larger amount this week. Fewer new sellers coming to market while a greater than a usual number of buyers continue to search for a home causes inventory to continue to evaporate.
