All signs point to YES! With 42% of all homes sold by Millennials, I think it’s safe to say they are a huge factor to this thriving housing market. Millennials are all grown up and ready to embark on their home-buying journey, which in turn is making their parents, a.k.a. “empty-nesters” realize, it might be the time to downsize. I believe both of these factors combined with low interest rates are causing this strong housing demand. Here are some numbers to back that up:
Pending Sales increased 17.6% for Detached homes and 15.4% for Attached homes. Which in turn caused inventory for Detached homes to decrease 12.4%, and a staggering 28.7% for Attached homes. With this huge decrease in homes for sale you can guess what happens next.
yes prices have gone up! The Median Sales Price is up 8.6% for Detached homes, and 10.3% for Attached properties year over year. Yes you heard me right, over 10% increase in values for most Attached Homes. The best part about it, there are no signs of this slowing down going into next year.
If you’re wondering why there are very few houses on the market, know that it is only going to get worse going into the Holidays. We usually see a slight slow down through November however come December we will see even less homes come to market. However we also see a lot of buyers stop their search during the Holidays so that means potentially less competition for you!

We keep hearing from our clients that they have been told that the market is slow during this time of the year. All I have to say is look at the numbers, the numbers never lie! Pending Sales have went through the roof and inventory levels are down, those numbers tell us it’s a perfect time to sell. Want to know the value of your home? Find out for free here
