Lowest median days-on-market since the peak of the housing boom

OVERVIEW

The housing market in the Washington DC Metro Area continues to post strong growth as we approach the summer season.  Sales are at a seven-year high for May, and new contracts are back to peak housing boom levels.  The median sale price for the region is rising and posted the highest May level on record. The median sale price is now over $30,000 higher than May 2012, and over $70,000 higher than May 2011.  It appears that the rising price points could be enticing more sellers to enter the market, as new listings are up nearly 20 percent from this time last year, reflecting back-to-back months of double-digit growth for this indicator.

Median days-on-market at a seven-year low

OVERVIEW

Market indicators continue to improve in the Baltimore Metro Region as we head into summer.  Sales and new pending contracts increased at double-digit rates for the second month in a row, and the median sales price resumed growth after falling flat last month.  The inventory of homes for sale remains at an 8-year May low across all property segments.  Despite the continual inventory shortage, new listings are showing signs of life and are up nearly 20 percent from this time last year, reflecting back-to-back months of double-digit growth for this indicator.

As reported in the RBI Housing Market Update for April, homes sold in the DC Metro area are spending a median of 11 days on the market, the lowest level for the region in 8 years. Yesterday, we provided our friends over at DC Urban Turf with the Top 10 fastest moving ZIP codes in DC and DC Metro area (see their article here). 

Here's UrbanTurf's chart for the DC area:

But, if we had to award a Gold Medal in the April sales sprint, it would go to Sterling's 20164.
