COVID-19 has impacted the real estate market mainly by causing substantially fewer sellers to list their homes for sale.   Below are some graphs that show the initial decrease in various market activities and then their recovery on a weekly basis.

HOMES LISTED PER WEEK

As illustrated, the number of homes listed in 2022 so far has remained lower compared to previous years, and those that do get listed don’t stay on the market for long with anxious buyers jumping on listings as soon as they hit the market. Inventory remains tight as there’s more demand than supply.

SNAPSHOT OF HOMES FOR SALE EACH SATURDAY IN MA

The graph illustrates the number of homes for sale every Saturday. As you can see, 2022 is showing historically low numbers for available inventory as demand has cannibalized most of the available supply.

SINGLE FAMILY INVENTORY

The available inventory of single-family homes also sits at historically low levels so far in 2022. Single-family homes are the highest in demand and are therefore being purchased almost as quickly as they’re listed. This, coupled with the fact that single-family homes are not being listed as much, has contributed to these low inventory numbers week after week.

HOMES PENDING PER WEEK

The number of homes placed under agreement (contracts accepted) in 2022 has been lower when compared to previous years, corresponding with the lower number of listings placed on the market.
