Conclusions for Salisbury MD Area Home Buyers

Single family home sales in the Salisbury Maryland area and Wicomico County continue to impress, posting the best month for total sales in nine years and blowing through last month’s expectation.

With a scant 4 months of inventory, today’s buyers literally cannot afford to sit back and watch their new home be bought by someone else. Multiple offers on properties are becoming more and more common as mortgage rates dropped to multi-year lows at a time when buyer activity is traditionally at its peak for the year.

We’ve also seen median home prices in the Salisbury MD area increase year over year for three consecutive months, suggesting we may be witnessing the early stages of a full blown housing market recovery. Buyers who wait on their home purchase are risking an affordability crunch if prices continue to swing upward and interest rates begin to creep up as well.

Outlook for July 2016 in Salisbury MD Real Estate

The surprise result in the recent “Brexit” vote sent stocks tumbling and put additional downward pressure on mortgage rates. We expect rates to remain low for the balance of the month with next Friday’s release of the June Jobs Report having some bearing in which direction they will go.

Low home inventory in the Salisbury Maryland area could dampen sales a bit but we expect to see around 90 units closed this month. Second quarter and mid-year housing reports will be published soon, giving us the opportunity to drill down and take a closer look at the Wicomico County housing market as a whole.
