Active listings shrink, drop below 12,000 for only the 2nd time since 2006 Baltimore County - City - Harford County and Surrounding Metro area Market OVERVIEW: The Baltimore Metro housing market continues to exhibit signs of strength compared with last year. Both sales and new contracts had double-digit growth from August 2011. The median sale price for the metro area also rose from last year albeit slightly. If demand persists into the fall, the shrinking inventory of homes for sale will continue to play a major role in the market. Currently, the low supply of active listings is putting upward pressure on prices, decreasing days-on-market (down 17 days from last year), and increasing the average sale-to-list price ratio (up 3.5 points from last year). Many people are likely keeping their homes off the market due to continued economic uncertainty, preferring to wait it out.
