Homes for sale are down over 23% in Blaine versus last year through February. Despite the lack of inventory the number of transactions are not that far off from last year. This is a testament to the strong buyer demand and still relatively low mortgage rates. It still remains an unbelievably great time to sell.
We are keeping an eye on a few things as the Spring market approaches. Mortgage rates - rates are up over 1% from this time last year and my have an effect on affordability and home prices later this year. Covid 19 - this will be a constant concern but it looks like things are on a good trajectory. Geo-politics - namely Putin. The conflict in Ukraine has caused already rising gas prices to skyrocket and could go much higher if things don't get resolved quickly and quietly. This leads us into inflation - this will affect affordability and in turn home values as well.
