Here’s how our current market compares to that of 2020.

It’s a fun time in the real estate market, both locally and around the country. Today I’ll update you on what’s going on specifically here in the Tulsa area and show you how it compares to last year.

As you can see on the chart at 1:30 in the video above, closed listings are up 21%, pending listings are up 7%, and new listings are up 4%. The main problem, and why we’re feeling like there is a shortage of inventory, is more properties are leaving the market than are coming on the market.

The average sales price has gone up 22.72% in the last year, which is an advantage for sellers, who didn’t even have to do anything to their homes to enjoy this increase in value. Now imagine if you had some equity in your home even before 2020—you have almost 23% more! This could be a great time for you to take advantage of the inventory shortage by selling your home.

Both buyers and sellers are noticing that homes are selling faster. The average number of days a home spends on the market here in Tulsa is 24 days, which is eight days faster than at this same time last year. Additionally, the list-to-sales price ratio is currently 99%, meaning that properties are selling faster and for more money.

All this feeds into the absorption rate (or month’s supply of inventory), which is currently at 1.87. That means if no new homes came on the market, we’d sell all of what is currently available in almost two months. The lower the month’s supply is, the more the market favors sellers, which we’re definitely seeing today.

“Properties are selling faster and for more money.”

However, low interest rates are keeping many buyers in the market. Lower rates mean increased affordability, so it could make sense for you to buy a home right now. If that’s a goal you have, we’re here to help you figure out the best way to win.

If you’re thinking about selling your home, we created a Seller Rescue Plan that will help you work through the hassles of buying and selling a home at the same time. Whatever your goals are, we can help you take advantage of this rare opportunity. We don’t know how long the market is going to remain like this, but for now, we’re just helping our clients through it.
