Overall Home Sales Up Nearly 26 Percent Year-Over-Year

The pandemic has presented certain challenges in buying and selling real estate—but those challenges have done nothing to slow home sales.

According to data from the National Association of REALTORS® (outlined in a recent article from REALTOR® Magazine), home sales in the United States increased a whopping 25.8 percent from November 2019 to November 2020. Inventory is also too low to meet demand—which is driving up housing prices across the country.

“Sales for all of 2020 are already on pace to surpass last year’s levels,” National Association of REALTORS® chief economist, Lawrence Yun, said in the article. “Given the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s amazing that the housing sector is outperforming expectations.”

The Takeaway:

So, what does this mean for you? Thanks to low inventory and high buyer demand, homes are selling quickly and profitably and significantly outpacing 2019 sales—so if you’ve been thinking about listing your home, now is a great time to make a move.
