  • New listings up for the fourth week in a row. For the week ending February 25, there were 4,866 new listings in the Bright MLS service area, up 6.9% from last year at this time. This is the fourth consecutive week where new listings have exceeded numbers from the same period last year. This is a good sign for inventory as listing activity continues trending above last year. 
  • Time to contract breaks the downward trend. After six weeks of declines in the median time to contract, homes are taking one day longer to sell than they did a week ago. While the downward trend has halted, the median time to contract is still two days faster than the same week last year. 
  • Mid-Atlantic median list price returns under $400k. Compared to the same week last year, the median list price in the Bright MLS service area dropped by 2.5% from the previous week. However, the median list price is still higher than it was last year, up 5.3% across the region.
