Just as there are physical seasons, residential real estate sales has it's seasons too. Typically, Spring captures the highest number of transactions, with each subsequent season seeing decreased activity. Historically, winter has the lowest activity, and then the activity starts again. 2020 has been far from ordinary and the real estate market has followed suit. This year, the Spring market was eliminated due to shelter-in-place orders. Summer behaved like a typical Spring market. As we head into Autumn, we expect September, October, and the first half of November to resemble the typical Summer sales pattern.
We don't expect the Autumn months to be quite as active as June, July, and August. However, with low supply (51% less inventory than last year), strong demand (highest since May of 2016), increased affordability (mortgage rates dipping below 3%), and a strong demographic (Millennials are now the largest living adult generation and are purchasing their first home), are all signs that we are headed into an extraordinary Autumn real estate market!
