Home Demand Index

The Bright MLS | T3 Home Demand Index for the Baltimore Metro market area rose 12 percent in March to 121 reflecting a Moderate pace of buyer demand. The Index was in the Steady range in February.
Demand increased for each type of home in March except condos, where buyer interest was down marginally over the month in each of the two price segments. The Index increased the most for higher-priced single-family homes, up by 42 percent compared with February. While demand for higher-priced condos decreased, this segment, along with higher-priced single-family homes, recorded the strongest buyer interest. Demand for lower-priced single-family homes remained the weakest with Limited buyer interest, although demand did increase over the month. The months supply decreased for all types of homes reflecting an increase in sales that further depleted an already low inventory of homes. The months supply ranged from 0.8 months for mid-priced single-family homes and lower-priced condos to 1.7 months for higher-priced condos.
