ABQ House Prices up over 20% from this time last year

  • The Median price single family house in the Albuquerque metro area rose 20% in April, compared to one year ago, and now stands at $283,375. The median is the point at which half the houses sell below, and half sell above.

  • The Average Price for a Single Family House in April rose to $328,768, an increase of 21.4% compared to one year ago.

It’s a Crazy Market… 

But Definitely Different Than the Price Run Up Before the 2008 Housing Crash 

Is this a bubble that is about to burst? No, it’s a function of supply and demand, and that situation is not showing signs of changing any time soon. The supply of both new and existing homes for sale is still shockingly low - about one third of the number of homes as were available a year ago just before the pandemic brought activity to a slow down. Fewer sellers wanted to put their house on the market much of last year, and new home construction has also slowed due to the pandemic and the increasing cost of construction materials.

Meanwhile, demand is high as buyers look forward to taking advantage of still historically low interest rates. As a result of the supply/demand situation, many houses are receiving multiple offers within a day or two of hitting the market and sellers are getting a city-wide average of 102% of list price.
