Houston Weekly Market Movements

Tuesday, 15 January 2019 09:25

The start of a new year often creates a desire to resolve to do something different. Weight loss through a combination of regular exercise and healthy eating is often at the top of the list, followed by learning a new skill, quitting smoking, reading more, spending more time with loved ones, getting more organized, traveling and saving money. Annual evidence indicates that a bump in listing and buying activity also occurs each January, which appears to be the case again in 2019 for much of the country. In the Houston region, for the week Ending January 6: • New Listings decreased 9.1% to 1,907 • Pending Sales increased 6.0% to 1,142 • Closed Sales increased 61.0% to 1,085Source: Har.com

National trends can often reflect what occurs in our local residential real estate. Compared to June, the unemployment rate has remained the same according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Housing starts are lower nationwide, even as consumers continue to buy home goods.  In the Houston region, for the week ending July 15:New Listings Pending Sales Closed SalesNew Listings decreased 1.6% to 3,329Pending Sales increased 18.1% to 2,232Closed Sales decreased 3.1% to 1,774Source: Har.com

Monday, 09 July 2018 12:37

In June, for the first time in almost a year, the unemployment rate rose to 4 percent. There is an upward pressure on wages due to the high demand for employees but low supply. Adding more than 213,000 paying jobs last month creates a strong job market and is perceived to be a healthy increase by economic forecasters. People who are employed, with higher wages, are great for residential real estate.  In the Houston region, for the week ending July 1:New Listings increased 2.2% to 3,339Pending Sales increased 20.4% to 2,279Closed Sales decreased 3.6% to 2,754Source: Har.com

Home price appreciation is on the rise across most of the country, which is welcome news for homeowners that recall a time when it was not. Although trends vary by region and state, the overarching trend is increased prices, according to research performed by the National Association of REALTORS® on American Community Survey data from 2005 through 2016. Price growth is strongest in the South and less so in the Northeast, and only a few states show no growth or losses. Affordability is most favorable in the Midwest, and the West is least affordable, on average. In the Houston region, for the week ending November 19: New Listings increased 1.8% to 2,182 Pending Sales increased 8.0% to 1,691 Closed Sales decreased 9.9% to 1,568 Source: Har.com

Houston Market Movements - Week of Nov 20th

Tuesday, 21 November 2017 10:31

During the final two months of the year, residential real estate traditionally slows down to make way for holiday shopping and travel. Assessing the dominant trend of 2017, most housing markets have seen the number of homes for sale decrease in year-over-year comparisons. So much so, that further decreases in 2018 will be newsworthy, as prices would likely keep rising in a seller's market. Presently, in a thriving economy with low unemployment, agents and consumers alike still have reason for optimism. In the Houston region, for the week ending November 12: New Listings increased 5.9% to 2,302 Pending Sales increased 30.9% to 1,751 Closed Sales increased 7.4% to 1,241 Source: Har.com

The level of national real estate activity should subside each week for the remainder of the year. Savvy real estate professionals are not only beginning to plan now for a successful 2018, but they continue to track the trends to see where prices, listings and other metrics are at relative to last year and all past years of available data. Finding reliable patterns in the trends is a sure way to be of greater service to buyers and sellers. Let's see where those trends are in our market. In the Houston region, for the week ending October 22: New Listings increased 6.6% to 2,470 Pending Sales increased 32.0% to 1,934 Closed Sales decreased 0.7% to 1,429 Source: Har.com

Few cities and neighborhoods around the nation are turning heads as hotFew cities and neighborhoods around the nation are turning heads as hotbeds of new housing inventory. Residential real estate markets that have had a hard time dealing with a reduction in the number of homes available for sale are now also struggling to keep up with new listings levels from last year. While it's true that builder confidence is up, it will take time before any sort of new development spawns a significant change in trend direction. In the Houston region, for the week ending October 1: New Listings decreased 2.4% to 2,356 Pending Sales increased 25.0% to 1,939 Closed Sales decreased 11.4% to 1,972 Source: Har.com

Houston Market Movements - Week of Oct 2nd

Monday, 02 October 2017 15:59

Last year's national chorus was about how high buyer demand, a sunny economic outlook and enticingly low mortgage rates were propping up sales and prices in spite of low inventory. That refrain is still common enough, but regional changes continue to become more pronounced, whether due to weather, differing employment expectations or varying new construction outlooks. Let's look at how our unique local market is performing. In the Houston region, for the week ending September 24: New Listings decreased 6.4% to 2,280 Pending Sales increased 18.5% to 1,886 Closed Sales increased 3.9% to 1,560 Source: Har.com

Houston Market Movements - Week of September 25th

Monday, 25 September 2017 16:07

According to the National Association of Home Builders, there is a rising demand in the new-home market spurred by ongoing job and economic growth, the continuation of attractive mortgage rates and increased consumer confidence. And there does appear to be a notable increase in building or announced building projects around the country. Builder confidence tends to equate with more construction starts, which would be welcome news in an era of low inventory. In the Houston region, for the week ending September 17: New Listings decreased 2.6% to 2,446 Pending Sales increased 17.6% to 1,833 Closed Sales increased 10.4% to 1,906

Houston Market Movement - Week of September 11th

Tuesday, 12 September 2017 11:18

National real estate market trends have remained steady for the last couple of years, allowing the residential segment to flourish in terms of sales activity and buyer demand. Even when total sales are not measuring forward in year-over-year comparisons, it is evident that the market is responding positively to wider economic indicators. Higher prices, fewer days on market and lower months of supply are all usual indicators of healthy activity. As expected, we are beginning to see declines in new listings and sales as a result of Hurricane Harvey. In the Houston region, for the week ending September 3: New Listings decreased 63.5% to 932 Pending Sales decreased 53.1% to 712 Closed Sales decreased 81.6% to 413
