July Market: Price Up, Sales Down

For only the second time in the last year, New Hampshire saw a drop in July residential unit sales compared to July 2020, this time a 15 percent decline – the largest dip since May 2020. Meanwhile, median price continued to soar in July, at $402,000 marking the third consecutive month above the $400,000 plateau and an 18 percent increase over July 2020.

Other numbers of note in the July Monthly Market Indicators report:

  • There were 1,737 homes on the market at the end of July, which is 40 percent below a year ago and the equivalent of 1.1 months’ supply (a balanced market is considered 6-7 months). The 1.1 months is just below the average supply number (1.2) over the past year in New Hampshire.
  • Pending sales were down 10.8 percent, leaving it likely that August will show a second consecutive month of sales decreases.
  • Average Days on Market – the time between a listing and an accepted offer – duplicated last month’s all-time low of 18 days.
