Home Demand Index | Historical Year-over-Year Comparison

Demand for homes in the Baltimore Metro area has drifted lower during the past four months following a very strong spring and early summer market. In addition to the usual seasonal slowdown in buyer activity during the second half of the year, an uptick in mortgage rates and ongoing home price gains have reduced affordability and dampened buyer interest.
