Maryland real estate market trends are being put together by our MLS, Bright MLS. Here is the update for the week ending September 19, 2021.
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 09/19/2021, the Maryland real estate data shows the following:
Last week, there was 1.19 new contract written for every new listing, which means that this past week, there were not enough houses for sale then homes that went under contract for the eighth week in a row.
In Maryland, the daily number of “New Active Listings” added to the market from 9/12-19 from last report dropped again, coming in below 2019 numbers and remaining below 2020 numbers. Listings last week were at 94.7% of the number of new listings from the same point in 2020. Going back to 2019, listings are at 98% of the amount this same week that year.
New pending listings from 9/12-19 jumped up this week, but remaining below 2020 for a sixth week in a row. They were at 97.9% of the same time frame last year, and 127.9% compared to 2019.
Closings also jumped up week, staying above 2019 numbers and falling just below 2020 numbers. Closings were at 122.6% compared to 2019, and were at 99.4% 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.
