Central MS Market Snapshot as of July 22, 2021

Real Estate Agent with Front Gate Real Estate Broker 11085

The statistics are in for the 3rd week of July, 2021. You may wonder how this data affects you if you are looking to buy or sell a home in Central MS. Let's see what the numbers mean.

Our primary market area is Hinds, Rankin, and Madison County. You can review the stats for the particular area you are interested in. While I'm not a math wiz (and you may not be either), the numbers are revealing.

Compare the number of closings vs the number of new listings. In each case, the weekly closings exceed the number of new listings. This tells me homes are selling as fast as they hit the market.

Look at the supply of homes. There is less than one months inventory. This equates to a strong sellers market with low inventory, homes that sell fast with multiple offers, at list price or above.

I must stress the importance of hiring a Realtor to represent you in a sellers market. While homes are selling quickly, an experienced Realtor knows how to maximize your exposure while maximizing your bottom line.

With the levels of inventories being so low, sellers can expect to sell quickly and get a good price for their homes as well, provided they have made it attractive for buyers

Hi Pat... we are seeing the same here for quite some time now... less than on month's worth of inventory. I've probably said it before, but will say it again... love you graphic.
