Maryland real estate market trends are collected and documented by our MLS, Bright MLS. Here is the update for the week ending May 22, 2022.
Bright MLS current covers seven states, so there are statistics for a number of areas. There is a general overview for the entire MLS, and later there is specific state data.
Starting on page 24 of the Bright MLS multi-state report 05/22/2022, the Maryland real estate data shows the following:
Last week, there was .95 new contract written for every new listing, which means that this past week, there were enough houses for sale vs homes that went under contract for a second week in a row.
In Maryland, the daily number of “New Active Listings” added to the market from 5/15-22 from last report dropped, remaining below 2021 numbers but also remaining well above 2020 numbers. Listings last week were at 114.8% of the number of new listings from the same point in 2020. From 2021, listings are at 78.4% of the amount this same week last year.
New pending listings from 5/15-22 dropped this week, remaining below 2021 numbers all falling below 2020 numbers. They were at 85% of the same time frame last year (2021,) and 90% compared to 2020.
Closings dropped slightly last week. Closings stayed below the 2021 number but remained above 2020 numbers. Closings were at 88% compared to 2021, and were at 125.1% compared to the same week from 2020.
I appreciate this data from Bright MLS and look forward to seeing the next report so I can share with you once received.
