January Market Indicators

The 2021 market continues to be very strong without any signs of slowing down. Even as interest rates start to creep up, buyers are not backing down and inventory remains at all time lows. The pent up buyer demand has been resulting in multiple offer situations becoming a common-day occurrence. In fact, residential homes moved quickly, only spending a median of 8 days in the MLS in January which is 40 days less compared to last year and 1 day less compared to last month.
