OBSERVATIONS

Active Listing Inventory remained stable this week, but Pending Sales increased, countering last week's Fourth of July-week drop-off.   Closed Listings and Listings Expiring countered last week's increases - predictably, since we are now mid-month.  Total Sales Volume gave up last week's gain.  Average Market Time fell this week - but there is no established trend here toward moderation.

Absorption Rate, or average inventory turnover, gave back much of last week's 3.1% improvement - increasing by 2.6%, to 28.19 months of active inventory, on average, in the North and Northwest Side Neighborhoods we serve in the City of Chicago!   Percentage of Sale Within Six Month (180 Days) showed a decent 2.4% gain this past week, however.

RATE AND MARKET CHECK 

Average 30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates increased 0.2% this past week, as compared to the week ending July 3rd.  Rates averaged 6.37% for the week ending July 10th.   One year ago, average 30-Year Fixed Mortgage Interest Rates were 6.73%

"In the housing sector, economic reports were mixed this week," said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac Vice President and Chief Economist. "Pending sales (nationally) for existing homes fell more than expected in May but April's increase was revised even higher, according to the National Association of Realtors.

"Offsetting this decline, the number of mortgage applications for home purchases over the week ending July 4th was nearly 10 percent above the over five-year low set just two weeks prior, despite the holiday break, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association."
