The Housing Hot List for October
realtor.com    article by Daily Real Estate News | October 30, 2017

Nashville Union Station HotelListing prices for residential homes remained near record highs in October, according to a preliminary analysis by realtor.com®. The median list price nationwide was $274,000, near the $275,000 record set in June.

One point of relief for “market-fatigued buyers” who’ve faced low inventories for the past few years is that supplies of new listings are up slightly from a year ago, says Danielle Hale, realtor.com®’s chief economist. By the end of October, about 420,000 new listings will have hit the market over the entire month, realtor.com® predicts.

Some housing markets are more lively than others, with California continuing to see some of the most activity. Realtor.com® released its “hottest market” list for October, which is based on how quickly homes are selling and the amount of clicks cities receive on listings at realtor.com®.

The top 20 performing markets in October are:

  1. San Jose, California
  2. Vallejo, California
  3. San Francisco, California
  4. San Diego, California
  5. Boston, Massachusetts
  6. Stockton, California
  7. Sacramento, California
  8. Detroit, Michigan
  9. Denver, Colorado
  10. Modesto, California
  11. Columbus, Ohio
  12. Fresno, California
  13. Dallas, Texas
  14. Nashville, Tennessee
  15. Colorado Springs, Colorado
  16. Midland, Texas
  17. Rochester, New York
  18. Oxnard, California
  19. Santa Cruz, California
  20. Janesville, Wisconsin

20 Markets with Strongest Kickoff to 2017

20 Markets with Strongest Kickoff to 2017
realtor.com | January 26, 2017

nashvillesky175x200The time it has taken for homes to sell nationwide in January has decreased at a rate of 4 percent compared to a year ago, despite record-high housing prices, according to realtor.com®’s latest housing report.

“We saw evidence of a stronger-than-normal off season starting last September and October due to pent-up demand and surging interest from first-time buyers,” says realtor.com® chief economist Jonathan Smoke. “The downside to this strong off season is that we have started 2017 with a new low volume of available homes for sale and a new high for prices.”

Listing inventories are down 11 percent in January compared to a year ago. Also, the median list price for the month is an estimated $250,000 — 10 percent higher than January 2015, realtor.com® notes. Nevertheless, “the threat of rates approaching multiyear highs in the months ahead is creating a sense of urgency [among buyers],” Smoke says.

The following are the top-performing markets this month:

  1. San Francisco
  2. San Jose
  3. Vallejo
  4. Dallas
  5. San Diego
  6. Sacramento
  7. Yuba City
  8. Denver
  9. Stockton
  10. Fresno
  11. Oxnard
  12. Columbus
  13. Colorado Springs
  14. Nashville
  15. Detroit
  16. Modesto
  17. Los Angeles
  18. Tampa
  19. Santa Rosa
  20. Fort Wayne

Nashville, Tennessee

California real estate professionals are staying busy. Cities in California continue to dominate lists of the most booming housing markets in the country. But they’re not alone. Many markets across the country are seeing elevated sales this fall.

“After an eventful election, demand for real estate appears to be carrying momentum going into the holiday season,” says Javier Vivas, manager of economic research for realtor.com®. “We expect that to be put to the test, as mortgage rates sky rocket to new highs. But forecasts expect growth as we enter the new year, which should keep waves of buyers intent on entering the market.”

Inventory of homes for sale is down 5 percent in November from October, but the combo of low supply and high demand is keeping prices high, realtor.com® notes. The median list price nationwide remained at $250,000 for the fourth consecutive month, a new record for November.

Realtor.com® flagged the following 20 markets as the hottest in the country in November, where homes are selling the fastest and demand is highest (based on page views):

  1. San Francisco CA
  2. Dallas TX
  3. Vallejo CA
  4. Denver CO
  5. San Jose CA
  6. San Diego CA
  7. Stockton CA
  8. Fort Wayne IN
  9. Columbus OH
  10. Detroit MI
  11. Sacramento CA
  12. Boston MA
  13. Santa Rosa CA
  14. Fresno CA

The Hot List: 20 Markets Soaring in September

The Hot List: 20 Markets Soaring in September
Article by Daily Real Estate News | September 30, 2016

realtordotcom-logoSeptember is shaping up to be the hottest fall in the last decade, according to realtor.com®’s latest housing report. Homes for sale in September are moving 4 percent more quickly than last year, despite prices zooming to record highs.

The median home price was $250,000 in September, about 9 percent higher than a year ago and marking a new high for September, realtor.com® reports.

“The fundamental trends we have been seeing all year remain solidly in place as we enter the slower time of the year,” says Jonathan Smoke, realtor.com’s chief economist. A shortage of homes for sale on the market mixed with high demand is triggering price increases across many markets, he says.

So, which housing markets in September stood out the most? Realtor.com®’s data team factored in the number of days homes are spending on the market and the number of views that listings received at its site.

They pinpoints these cities as the hottest real estate markets in the nation in September — those in which inventories are moving 23 to 43 days more quickly than the national average, and listings are garnering 1.4 to 3.7 more views.

  1. San Francisco
  2. Vallejo
  3. Denver
  4. Dallas
  5. San Diego
  6. Stockton
  7. Fort Wayne
  8. Sacramento
  9. San Jose
  10. Waco
  11. Modesto
  12. Columbus
  13. Yuba City
  14. Detroit
  15. Santa Rosa
  16. Colorado Springs

  18. Kennewick
  19. Nashville
  20. Grand Rapids

Nashville Among The 20 Hottest Housing Markets for July 2016
Article by Daily Real Estate News | July 28, 2016

ParthenonCornerJuly 2016 may end up as a month for the record books. According to new realtor.com® data, the U.S. is seeing the hottest July for home buying and selling in a decade.

“The best spring in a decade has transitioned into the hottest summer in a decade,” says Jonathan Smoke, realtor.com®’s chief economist. “Pent-up demand left over from tight supply for two years against the backdrop of mortgage rates remaining near three-year lows have encouraged buyers to keep active at a time when sales usually begin to decline.”

Smoke estimates that properties spent a median of 68 days on the market in July, and the median home price is $251,000, a record price for the month and 7 percent higher than a year ago.

In certain markets, housing markets are especially sizzling. Realtor.com®’s research team took a look at the number of days homes spent on the market, the measure of available supply, and the number of listing views on realtor.com® (to represent demand). They then identified the following 20 medium-to-large U.S. markets where homes are selling the fastest:

  1. Vallejo, CA
  2. Dallas, TX
  3. Denver, CO
  4. San Francisco, CA
  5. Stockton, CA
  6. Columbus, OH
  7. San Diego, CA
  8. Santa Cruz, CA
  9. Sacramento, CA
  10. Santa Rosa, CA
  11. Yuba City, CA
  12. Modesto, CA
  13. Detroit, MI
  14. Fort Wayne, IN
  15. San Jose, CA
  16. Colorado Springs, CO
  17. Fresno, CA
  18. Eureka, CA
  19. Nashville, TN
  20. Ann Arbor, MI
