Year-over-Year Gains in Closed Sales and New Contracts

Rockville, MD (March 12, 2012) – The following analysis of the Baltimore Metro Area housing market has been prepared by RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI), and is based on the February 2012 RBI Pending Home Sales Index™ released today.

View PDF version of this analysis                                                                      


The 1,454 homes sold in the Baltimore Metro Area represent the highest February total since 2007. Inventory levels continue to decline with 11,919 active listings at the end of February representing the lowest supply of homes since March 2006. With 440 active foreclosures representing only 3.7% of the active inventory (the lowest level since November 2008) and a shift in the composition of homes types sold, the median sales price for the region saw an annual (year-over-year) increase for the first time in 16 months.

The 2011 yearly reports by county are now available and, for the first time ever, RBI subscribers can also access these annual reports at ZIP Code and regional levels! Click here for an example of a year-end ZIP Code report or visit the Reports tab on any Geo page to see a list of the reports now available.

Quick Q&A...

As an rbiEXPERT or rbiPRO subscriber, do I get any additional content in the Detailed Reports category?

Yes. Not only can you keep up-to-date on Year-To-Date comparisons with the new time aggregate reports we announced a few weeks back, you'll also be able to view the "official" Year End Reports at the ZIP code level. This more granular report is for subscribers only, and should be integrated into your local trends discussion with any potential buyer or seller over the next few months. Then, come April 10th, you'll be able to access the Q1 report to continue reporting key trends for logical time ranges during your client discussions.
