Inventory continues to drop in May

May single family residential home sales in New Hampshire were down by 25 percent compared with May a year ago, and the main driver of the sluggish sales pace – inventory – was down by 40 percent, as sellers continue to hesitate while the pandemic plays out. As many have predicted, pricing remained strong in May – up 6.6 percent over May 2019 at $319,900, and it was in fact the second highest median price for a single month in New Hampshire history, second only to April 2020.
