Worcester County Real Estate Market Report
Here in Worcester County in the last seven days, we have seen an uptick in new inventory. We had 35 properties come on the market, while in that same time, we had 17 go under contract. A little slower Christmas week here for new contracts in Worcester County. That gives us 449 properties countywide and 100 going under contract in the last 30 days with a 4.5-month supply.
Wicomico County Real Estate Market Report
Jumping over to Wicomico County, only 12 new listings in the last seven days, which is not too unexpected with the holiday, and 22 going under contract. So, almost double the properties going under contract as to what we saw come on the market in Wicomico. Currently, a 2.3-month supply in Wicomico County.
Sussex County Real Estate Market Report
Finishing up here on Delmarva with Sussex County, Delaware. In the last seven days, we had 44 new properties come on the market, while we once again almost doubled that as far as properties going under contract, with 84 new contracts here in the last seven days for Sussex County, Delaware. Countywide, we have a 4.1-month supply. That keeps coming down a little bit here, with 337 new properties going under contract in the last 30 days.
Mortgage Interest Rates
As I mentioned at the beginning here, we hit another seven-month low with our mortgage interest rates. Currently, the average is 6.61% for a 30-year fixed here throughout the country. So that's great news. We're continuing to see affordability improve as those interest rates have gone down.
So that is it. That's a wrap on the market reports here for 2023. Hopefully, this information is helpful to you. Obviously, it's just a quick snapshot as to what we're seeing on Delmarva.
