After a sluggish start to 2014, homebuyer demand is starting to bounce back, according to Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage, which today issued its Real-Time Demand Pulse, the only report in the industry that analyzes housing market demand based on home tour and offer data.
Between February and March, the number of Redfin customers touring homes rose 11.1 percent, the biggest March gain since 2011. Redfin clients signing offers grew 19.7 percent from February.
This boost in demand is a positive sign for May sales, but Redfin cautions that this year’s March numbers weren’t affected by the Easter holiday, as they were last year. This, combined with weak demand in February, made March look even rosier by comparison.
Since inventory remains very limited in most markets, moving quickly will be just as important for buyers as it was last year. “The limited number of homes for sale remains a big problem, and now that spring demand is heating up, serious buyers need flexible schedules,” said Washington, D.C., Redfin agent Tom Lewis. “In many cases, waiting until the weekend means missing your shot at your dream home.”
|March 2 - March 29, 2014 vs Four Weeks Prior||2014||2013|
|Redfin Customers Requesting Tours||11.1||%||9.1||%|
|Redfin Customers Signing Offers||19.7||%||21.5||%|
