SEP 2020 Market Report



The competitive housing market continues to be driven by limited inventory and low mortgage rates.
  • The overall median sales price, including existing and new home sales, reached a new record high of $409,945 last month, an increase of 17.2% year-over-year.
  • According to Freddie Mac, the average 30-year fixed rate mortgage was at 2.9% in September, down 19.7% year-over-year when compared to the September 2019 mortgage rate of 3.61%.
  • In September, Months Supply of Inventory was at just 0.4 months, meaning, if no additional homes were listed for sale, Ada County would run out of homes to buy in under two weeks. A balanced market is between 4-6 months of supply.
  • Homes are also going under contract faster — another indicator of a competitive market. In September, existing homes spent an average of only 17 days on the market, compared to 26 days in September 2019.
