Spring is historically seen as the start of the residential sales season — traditionally the hottest time of the year to buy a home.

The big picture: After the pandemic spurred a serious housing market frenzy, there's no sense of normalcy in residential real estate these days.

Driving the news: With interest rates now hovering above 5% on a 30-year mortgage, the number of available local listings is surging.

The impact: Increased supply and slowing sales have the ability to mute price gains, but so far that hasn't really happened.

  • "While supply is on the rise, so are prices," said Andrew Abrams, chair of the DMAR Market Trends Committee, in DMAR report.
  • "The average price of a single-family detached home is $825,073, representing a 3.93% increase from the last month."
