Porstmouth NH Real Estate Under $350,000

Portsmouth NH Real Estate Stats

Looking at the sales data for Portsmouth NH Real Estate for the first four months of the year over the last four years, it looks like Portsmouth home sales are sliding.  We will see more homes sold in the coming summer months and sales will surpass last year because mortgage rates are the driving factor.  However, new listings are down and the inventory is at it’s lowest level in some time.  I predict more homes will be coming to the market to take advantage of the growing demand and the perception of seller’s that as mortgage rates increase, their pool of buyers will decrease.

Porstmouth NH Price Trends

Looking at price trends over the same period paints a picture of a market that is poised to take off.  Median Sales Price is said to be a better indicator of price trends because Average Sales Price can be skewed by a transaction with an extremely high or low sales price.  Median Sales Price is the transaction in the middle of the data with half of the transactions having a sales price above and half below.  So Median Sales Price rides in the middle of the data presenting a better picture of where prices are headed.   We see that Median Asking Price has been trending slightly lower this year. portsmouth nh home values

Mortgage Rates Are The Fuel

Looking at the trend of mortgage rates over the last 52 weeks vs the last 52 years, we can see rates are making homes more affordable now.  As rates go up and we know they will, buyer’s purchase power will erode.  Don’t kick yourself in 2015 for not buying in 2014.  If you are renting and want to buy a home, now is the time to take advantage of home prices and mortgage rates before they go up.  If you are looking to make a move to a larger or newer home, your chances of getting a good deal are higher right now.
