Real estate activity spikes a year after the first stay-at-home order
Closed sales of single-family homes and condos rose 51.2% and 88.0%, respectively. The wide year-over-year variance is due to 2020’s downturn in real estate activity spurred by the initial shocks of the pandemic and the first stay-at-home order.
More than half of single-family homes – 58.9% to be exact – sold above the asking price last month. Meanwhile, high demand for single-family homes continues to keep the median days on market at a low of just nine days.
