Here is a look at the housing market as of April 25, 2021 for hobby farms, single-family houses on 5 to 20 acres within a 60-mile radius of Tulsa, Oklahoma, (within commuting distance of Tulsa, OK). These are real estate market statistics for single-family houses on 5 to 20 acres within commuting distance of Tulsa, OK (hobby farms within a 60-mile radius an hour around Tulsa).It is definitely a sellers’ market for hobby farms within commuting distance of Tulsa, Oklahoma. This month, the entire market is skewed in favor of sellers, since a six-month supply of homes is considered a balanced market for existing single-family homes.The following graph shows the change in the 3-month absorption rate over the past twelve months for hobby farms, homes (i.e., single-family houses) on 5 to 20 ac...

Here is the most recent Gilbert Real Estate Housing Market Report for March 2021:  The average sales price of homes in Gilbert increased by over $41,000 in March, up to an all-time high of $534,902, and the price per square foot has continued to climb for at least nine straight months, and is now up to $223/sf. Days on market has dropped for the second straight month to an all-time low of 22 DOM. This is extremely low, and means that homes in Gilbert are selling very fast!  Gilbert home sales increased by almost 100 over last month, but are still lower than in March of last year by -4.8%. Much of this has to do with the lack of homes listed for sale. The number of new listings also increased by over 100 from last month, at 481, but is still down -17.4% from March of last year. This lac...

  Condo Sales Surpass Single-Family Home Sales in O‘ahu’s Fast-Paced Housing Market  Real estate activity spikes a year after the first stay-at-home order    HONOLULU – According to resales figures released this week by the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®, closed sales of single-family homes and condos rose 51.2% and 88.0%, respectively. The wide year-over-year variance is due to 2020’s downturn in real estate activity spurred by the initial shocks of the pandemic and the first stay-at-home order.   Using data collected from its computerized Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system, the Board reported the following statistics:     Single-Family Home Resales   Number of Sales Median Sales Price April 2021   375 $928,000   April 2020   248 51.2% $809,000  14.7%  Condominium Resales   Number of ...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  Today is the BIG Day for economic data!  The Jobs Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).  The Non-Farm Payrolls had a HUGE Miss today, as they reported only 266k jobs created for April (when they had expectations of nearly a million); and March was revised lower, going from 916k to 770k.  The Unemployment Rate rose to 6.1% as a result of these very week numbers.  However, Average Earnings rose 0.7% in April, as Employers try to entice employees back to work.  Also, the Average Workweek Hours rose 0.1% to 35.0/week.  Lastly, Wholesale Inventories rose 1.3%.  Stocks are Up, even though the economic data was very weak.  Investors are looking at it as Bad News is Good News today.  A few Fed Members are speaking today; which Neel Kashkari (a Fed M...
