Conclusions for Salisbury Area Home Buyers

February home sales may have been down in the Salisbury area, but extreme weather certainly played a role. Toward the end of the month, pending sales took a sizable jump.

Mortgage rates remained relatively stable along with inventory, translating into the uptick in months of supply. There is likely some pent up demand as a result of the bad weather preventing many buyers from viewing homes.

Conclusions for Home Sellers in the Salisbury Area

Home sellers in the Salisbury real estate market also faced challenges from the weather. Many would-be sellers couldn't get their homes ready for the spring market because of snow, ice and extreme cold. For other sellers in escrow, inspections and appraisals were affected, delaying their closing.
