Market Shows Little Signs of Seasonal Slowdown, With 27.2 Percent of Homes Selling Within Two Weeks
SEATTLE, Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage, today issued its Fastest Markets Report for November 2013. Across 23 metro areas, the percentage of homes that went under contract within two weeks held steady at 27.2 percent in November, up slightly from 26.9 percent in October. November is the third consecutive month where the pace of the market has remained steady.
"Homebuyers are serious about finding a home before competition heats up in the spring and they know that speed is essential. While most Americans were shopping for turkeys as Thanksgiving approached, Bostonians were touring homes and making offers," said Alex Coon, a Redfin real estate agent in Boston.
While the percentage of homes selling within two weeks or less remained steady, homes remained on the market slightly longer than last month. For all homes across the 23 metro areas, the median number of days a home spent on the market before going under contract in November grew to 34, up from 31 days in October.
