National Pending Home Sales Drop 2.6% in October

According to the National Association of Realtors® pending home sales dropped 2.6% in October nationally. The pending sales are a forward-looking indicator to give us an idea of what closed sales will be in the next couple of months. This has been the tenth straight month of annual decreases. NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun believes that the higher interest rates are the main factor. Higher interest rates plus higher prices take a lot of buyers out of the buying pool.

The short-term outlook is very uncertain; however, Yun feels optimistic about the long-term outlook. We saw similar sales numbers in 2000. That being said, interest rates were much higher in 2000 and there are more jobs now. Unemployment numbers continue to go down which is a good sign for the economy.

Locally, in Flagstaff, we are still struggling with low inventory numbers. Click here  to see our blog on Flagstaff’s sales numbers for October.

Monthly Flagstaff Homes Sales Report – October 2018 Flagstaff Homes Sales

Happy Thanksgiving to all our family, friends and clients. We have compiled the sales numbers for October and wanted to share them with you along with the national sales numbers that just came in from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). The Flagstaff area saw 91 single family homes sold during the month of October, down from the 100 sold in October, 2017. The 91 sold this month was up however from September of this year when there were only 81 homes sold. Our median price for single family homes was $408,000 for October.

With just over one month to go in 2018 we are predicting a reduction in total sales of single-family homes compared to 2017. All things considered, overall, it will likely be a great year for our Flagstaff market. Inventory levels in the $500,000 and below ranges are still well below normal. We saw a dip in inventory in October compared to September. Many of the homes that did not sell were taken off the market or rented out. Historically, we see a reduction in inventory during the winter months. As we have been saying for months, inventory and affordability will continue to limit our market. There are no indications this is changing as we close out 2018 and head into the first quarter of 2019.

NAR just released the national numbers for October. For the first time in six months, total sales volume (all home types) increased 1.4% seasonally adjusted from September. The results show we are still down 5.1% when comparing sales to this time last year. Nationwide there has been an increase in inventory which Lawrence Yung, Chief Economist at NAR says “brought more buyers back to the market.”  Median price gains for all types of homes nationwide have increased year over year for the 80th consecutive month. The median price came in at $255,400. See the Existing homes sales report for more insight from NAR.
