The Bozeman real estate market has stayed strong despite the COVID-19 pandemic. But so has the real estate market as a whole across the country. Here is Windermere Real Estate's Chief Economist Matthew Gardiner with a brief overview of United States home sales data.

In the video below, Gardiner will cover:

  • U.S. existing home sales which have remained up five months in a row.
  • Existing sale prices that are up over 26% from last year.
  • Median house prices that are up to $313,000. That's up 15.5% from 2019. Right now, the consecutive months for home sale gains is up to 104.
  • Inventory, which remains down here in Bozeman and all across the country.
  • Time it takes to sell a house. Right now, according to Gardiner, 7 of 10 homes are sold in four weeks. The median time a house is on the market is 21 days.
