Weekly Market Report

For Week Ending May 22, 2021

A new analysis from Realtor.com® found that 20% of home sales nationwide in the first two months of this year were purchased in cash, up about 5% from a year ago. The substantial increase in cash buyers can be partially attributed to the competitiveness of the housing market, where a cash offer can help a buyer’s offer stand out from competing offers. Meanwhile, for buyers that do need to finance their purchase, mortgage rates on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged just 3% last week.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending May 22:

  • New Listings increased 1.1% to 1,818
  • Pending Sales increased 7.5% to 1,625
  • Inventory decreased 45.1% to 5,838
