Home Demand Index | Historical Year-over-Year Comparison

The Index has been on a steady downward trend since July as a combination of factors reduced buyer interest in Philadelphia Metro area homes. Higher mortgage rates have reduced affordability even as the pace of home price increases has eased. An unsettled economic outlook along with the usual end-of-year slowdown in market activity also have contributed to the drop in demand.
