No Surprises In May New Mexico Housing Market

first_imgMay 2019 housing numbers are on the same track as previous months this year – not as good as 2018’s record setting year, but better than any other year since 2008 when the New Mexico Association of REALTORS (NMAR) began keeping statistical information on statewide home sales. Wilson adds, “A less robust market this year compared to last may also be due to some fallout from the recent changes to the tax code. Current homeowners are grandfathered into the previous mortgage interest deduction, which is higher than what consumers can get nowadays. Plus, would-be move-up buyers may be wary of higher property taxes, now that the deduction for state and local taxes has been capped.” May’s average “days on market” was 65 – the shortest time reported during the last two years. Ten New Mexico counties reported average days on market under the statewide average. Local economic conditions continue to play a large role in housing market activity. Median price means half the properties sold for more; half for less. Anaya adds, “The May median is the highest reported since NMAR started keeping statistical data. This continued appreciation of property is generally good news, but often, even with low mortgage rates, higher prices offset the savings a buyer has to bring to the transaction.” NMAR News:center_img The trends and numbers reported are only a snapshot of market activity. If you are interested in buying or selling, consult a REALTOR familiar with your market area; he/she can provide information on specific trends in your neighborhood. ‘Median prices for New Mexico properties continue to grow with the May median reported at $220,000 compared to the April 2019 median of $210,000,” reports NMAR CEO Steven Anaya. “2,510 properties were reported sold in May 2019,” NMAR President Paul Wilson said. “This number is less than 2018’s 3,087 reported May sales, and 273 more sales than reported in May, 2017. 2019 year-to-date sales total 9,698.”last_img read more
