November 2021 Housing Market Update

Featured

The following is a breakdown of our November 2021 housing market — Nationally, Statewide, and hyper-locally.

NATIONALLY

  • Summary: Existing home sales increased slightly compared to last year.

The most recent monthly report, by the National Association of REALTORS®, was just released entitled, “Existing-Home Sales Continue Upward, Increasing 1.9% in November,” (by Quintin Simmons, published December 22nd, 2021). The following bullet points are additional highlights from this news release.

Existing-Home Sales

  • “Existing-home sales rose 1.9% in November from October to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 6.46 million.”
  • “The median existing-home sales price rose 13.9% year-over-year to $353,900.”
  • “From one year ago, the inventory of unsold homes decreased 13.3% to 1.1 million – equivalent to 2.1 months of the monthly sales pace.”
  • “Existing-home sales in the Midwest ticked up 0.7% to an annual rate of 1,520,000 in November, a 0.7% drop from a year ago. The median price in the Midwest was $260,100, a 9.0% jump from November 2020.

STATEWIDE

  • Summary: The state of Wisconsin has just about kept pace with last year’s sales; the Southeast outsold the other regions of the state, with the smallest margin of increased median sales price.

The Wisconsin REALTORS® Association, released their monthly market report with the headline, November Existing Home Sales Remain Solid as Prices Continue to Rise.” Here are some additional key takeaways:

November 2021 Home Sales Report

  • “Wisconsin’s November existing home sales kept pace with the strong sales of a year earlier, falling just 0.8% over the 12-month period. The median price rose 7.6% to $240,000 over that same period.”
  • “As we approach year-end, sales performance varied regionally on a year-to-date basis.  The strongest sales were seen in the Southeast region, which is running 3.7% higher than last year.”
  • On a year-to-date basis, all regions have seen their median prices rise, with the Southeast region up by the smallest margin, up 6.8%, compared to the January-through-November period last year […]”
  • “All measures of inventory fell over the past 12 months, including total listings, which were down 7%; new listings, down 1.9%; and months of available supply, down 10%.”

LOCAL MARKET

  • Summary: Our metro-Milwaukee area generally saw a decline in new listings and closings in November 2021, in comparison to our record November last year. This was true too of my hyper-local (Lake Geneva – Delavan – Williams Bay) area.

Below are the Local Market Reports, by MetroMLS, for the Counties of Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth, as well as the Lake Geneva-Delavan-Williams Bay area, and their monthly blog post called Market Reports: November 2021, by Dan Zielinski of FlexMLS, reflecting our hyperlocal multiple listing service area based out of Metro-Milwaukee.

September 2021 Housing Market Update

Featured

Fall is upon us! As the leaves changed colors and the temperature dropped, from Labor Day to the Autumnal Equinox, there were tons of things to do this past month! Thankfully, we were blessed us with bright sunny days and plenty of real estate activity as well, here in Southeastern Wisconsin. Continue reading for more on the housing market trends from September 2021 — from the national scale down to our hyperlocal Lake Geneva area market.

NATIONALLY

  • Summary: Existing home sales increased month over month, but declined year over year, on a national and regional scale.

The most recent monthly report, by the National Association of REALTORS®, was just released entitled, “Existing-Home Sales Ascend 7.0% in September,” (by Quintin Simmons, published October 21st, 2021). The following bullet points are additional highlights from this news release.

Existing-Home Sales

  • “Existing-home sales […] rose 7.0% from August”
  • “Sales decreased 2.3% from a year ago”
  • “The median existing-home sales price climbed 13.3% year-over-year to $352,800.”
  • “Existing-home sales in the Midwest rose 5.1% […] in September [compared to August, which equated to a] 2.7% drop from a year ago.”
  • “The median price in the Midwest was $265,300, a 9.1% increase from September 2020.”

STATEWIDE

  • Summary: The state of Wisconsin saw a decline in home sales and an increase in median sales price, compared to this time last year.

The Wisconsin REALTORS® Association, released their monthly market report with the headline, Low Inventories Continue to Hamper Sales and Increase Home Prices in September. Here are some additional key takeaways:

September 2021 Home Sales Report

  • “September existing home sales fell 8.6% […], and the statewide median home price increased 6.6% to $245,000 over that same 12-month period.”
  • Very tight inventories continue to hamper home sales throughout the state, with months of available supply falling in every region over the last 12 months.”
  • Mortgage rates remained under 3% for the fifth straight month. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was essentially unchanged at 2.90% in September 2021 compared to 2.89% in September 2020.
  • “Wisconsin’s housing affordability fell 5% over the past 12 months, but it has remained relatively stable all year.”

LOCAL MARKET

  • Summary: Our Tri-County Area market, of Racine, Kenosha & Walworth Counties, experienced a decrease in the number of closings and an increase in median sales price, in September 2021 compared to September 2020. However, while Walworth and Kenosha Counties both saw DOUBLE DIGIT percentage decreases in new listings, Racine County saw MORE new listings, year over year.

Below are the Local Market Reports, by MetroMLS for the Counties of Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth, as well as the Lake Geneva-Delavan-Williams Bay area; and their monthly blog post called Market Reports: September 2021, by Dan Zielinski of FlexMLS, reflecting our hyperlocal multiple listing service area based out of Metro-Milwaukee.

MARKET REPORTS: September 2021

https://metromls.com/market-reports-september-2021/

Active listings are down 3.1% and sold listings are down 6.2% compared to this time last year. The Months of Supply of Inventory experienced an uptick, increasing 3.4% compared to last September.

The above infographic includes data on single-family properties and condominiums in the 13 primary counties.

by Dan Zielinski | October 14, 2021 | Metro MLSFlexMLS



Sellers: There are plenty of buyers still out looking at, and inquiring about, the new listings on the market. September (and October) have been busier than in past years, as far as showings go; therefore, it is NOT too late to list your property for sale. I do not expect these buyers to give up on house hunting any time soon, with interest rates so low. Contact me or follow the link below if you would like a custom, free home valuation.

Buyers: Interest rates are still low, and I’ve heard from more than one source that rates are going to remain that way for the foreseeable future. However, the market IS competitive; there’s no way around that. The best thing you can do for yourself is to stay on top of the market (and have your pre-approval ready to go, if you need one). Good deals are out there, if you are prepared to jump when they pop up. If you need guidance, I am here to help – please feel free to reach out!

August 2021 Housing Market Update

Featured

Like the temperatures hitting us this week, it seems the recently released August housing market reports are all showing a decline in home sales, compared to this time last year. This is not atypical, given our ‘hot market season’ runs from May to August anyway. However, this could also have something to do with decreasing inventory and rising median sales prices. Overall, I can attest to the market remaining highly active (and competitive).

NATIONALLY

  • Summary: Existing home sales decreased slightly while median home sales prices increased in August, both on a national scale, and regionally, here in the Midwest, compared to last month and this time last year.

The most recent Existing Home Sales Report, by the National Association of REALTORS®, was just released titled, “Existing-Home Sales Recede 2.0% in August,” (Quintin Simmons, September 22nd, 2021). The following bullet points are additional highlights from this release.

Existing-Home Sales

  • “Existing-home sales dropped 2% on a seasonally adjusted annual rate from July to August.”
  • “The median existing-home sales price rose at a year-over-year pace of 14.9%.”
  • “Properties typically remained on the market for 17 days in August, unchanged from July and down from 22 days in August 2020.”
  • “In August 2021, each of the four major U.S. regions experienced declines on both a month-over-month and a year-over-year perspective.”

STATEWIDE

  • Summary: Honing in, Wisconsin saw a decline in home sales and an increase in median sales price, compared to this time last year.

The Wisconsin REALTORS® Association, released their monthly market report with the headline, Summer Housing Market Constrained by Tight Inventories. Here are some additional key takeaways:

August 2021 Home Sales Report

  • “August home sales fell 6.3% compared to their levels in August 2020, whereas the median price rose 6.4% to $250,000 over that same 12-month period.”
  • “Year to date, statewide sales are ahead of the pace recorded  in 2020.”
  • “The  median price is up 10.6% to $240,000 over that same period.”
  • “Average days on the  market [are] at the record-low level of just 65 days for the second straight month. This compares to 88 days in August of last  year. This is the lowest level for days on the market since the WRA began tracking this data in January 2005.”

LOCAL MARKET

  • Summary: Across our tri-county area (Kenosha, Racine & Walworth Counties) we saw a decline in the number of closed sales and compared to this time last year. Kenosha and Racine Counties actually had more new listings in August 2021, compared to August 2020. Finally, in Southeastern Wisconsin (except for in Racine County), the median sales priced increased, year over year, as well.

Below are the August 2021 Local Market Reports, by MetroMLS for the Counties of Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth, as well as the Lake Geneva-Delavan-Williams Bay area; and their monthly blog post called Market Reports: August 2021, by Dan Zielinski of FlexMLS, reflecting our hyperlocal multiple listing service area based out of Metro-Milwaukee.

MARKET REPORTS: AUGUST 2021

https://metromls.com/market-reports-august-2021/

Active listings are down 2.9% and sold listings are down 1.7% compared to this time last year. The Months of Supply of Inventory also saw a slight decrease, dropping 1.2% from last year.

Sellers: Although I do not believe scare tactics are (morally) useful, the fact remains: sellers, your time may be running out. If you have thought about selling your home, the time to act is now. Inventory is dropping, but buyers are still out there. Contact me or follow the link below if you would like a custom, free home valuation.

Buyers: If I’ve heard this once, I’ve heard this a million times this year: money is cheap. Even if you are on the fence, as to whether or not you want to buy a home this year, I suggest you call a lender and get a pre-approval squared away for when the right property pops up. Do not believe everything you hear – there are plenty of sellers out there accepting offers with loans and other contingencies. I am here to help – please feel free to reach out!

My Trip to: Jonathans on Brick Street

Across the street from Tower Park, in Historical Downtown Delavan, you’ll find Jonathan’s on Brick Street. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews since the place opened in May (2019). Since the holiday season is a great time to reconnect with old friends, I called my gal pal and made reservations to check the place out tonight!

We had 4:30 pm reservations, so I could get some quick pics of the lay out and maybe talk to the chef before the dinner rush. The interior design gave a warm and cozy yet chic vibe, and the waitstaff were very welcoming.

Starting from the right and going clockwise, the pictured foods are: Pinn Oak Farms Lamb Ribs, Center Cut Choice Jumbo Gulf Shrimp, Angus Beef Tenderloin, Angus New York Strip, Day Boat Jumbo Scallops, Center Cut Angus Ribeye

The chef even created a display of the premium meats and seafood he had hand picked for the night’s specials! After catching up for a while, we ordered a couple sampler platters s we’d have a bunch of options to taste test…and we were not disappointed.

Going clockwise starting from the right, are the following menu items: Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp, Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms, Jumbo Day Boat Sea Scallops

I’ve never had prosciutto wrapped shrimp, but now my life feels complete somehow? These were grilled too so the outside was crispy, but the shrimp inside were savory still. I don’t think I’ve met a stuffed mushroom I don’t like, but these were packed with vegetables, crab, shrimp, spices. The scallops were the melt-in-your-mouth kind, i.e., the best.

Pictured on this 2nd sampler plate, starting right and going clockwise, are: Brick Street Chop Salad, Fried Pickles, Homemade Cheese Curds, Pan Seared Ahi Tuna, Blackened Pork and Beef Tenderloin Medallions

Israeli couscous is my favorite. I love love LOVED the Ahi Tuna, which had this fantastic contrasting tropical fruit salad on top that was amazing. The cheese curds are always a must for me (Italian genetically + Wisconsin born = cheese required), and Jonathan’s were great. The tenderloin medallions, come on! My mouth is still watering. The pork was very juicy and had a great sear on the outside. The beef was cooked to a perfect medium well done, too. Needless to say, we were pretty full very fast!

By the time we had finished up, the place was getting crowded, which is always a good sign of delicious food. Overall: this place is definitely on the repeat list! I enjoyed everything from the aesthetic, to the crew, and the delectable dishes! Thank you Jonathan’s on Brick Street – I’ll see ya soon!

❤ always, Annie Z.
