Home Demand Index | Historical Year-over-Year Comparison

Demand for homes in the Philadelphia Metro area rose in January reflecting the seasonal increase in buyer interest at the start of the year. With an increasing number of buyers beginning their home search in anticipation of the competitive spring market, demand increased from the end-of-year low. Demand at the start of 2022 was at a lower level than one year earlier, however. A low inventory of homes at most price points limited buyers’ ability to complete purchases while rising home prices diminished affordability.
