With February’s jobs data looking better than expected and inflation running well within the Fed’s target range, mortgage rates ticked higher. It s not much, and this affordability environment is still hugely attractive, but it’s just enough to notice. Combined with low inventory, low rates have been a prominent motivation for buyers. But sellers need the real encouragement these days. Consistent year-over- year price gains have proven insufficient thus far, but that’s subject to change come spring.

• New Listings decreased 6.1% to 1,361
