Home Demand Index | Historical Year-over-Year Comparison

June marked the fourth consecutive month that the Index was in the High range. While demand remained strong, buyer interest has softened somewhat since April. The five percent decline during the past two months can be attributed to several factors including a continued rise in home prices, which has hampered affordability, and low inventory levels among all types of Baltimore area homes.
