Anne Arundel County real estate sales volume was lower all around this month with a 26% decrease in new listings hitting the market and the same percentage decrease in sales as compared to August 2021 (a record breaking month!).  We're seeing a tiny increase in inventory as buyers are responding to slightly increased interest rates.  But, the average home price still increased 5% over last year.  So the Anne Arundel county real estate market is still going strong, just at a more normal pace.  National news stories are reporting doom and gloom but in the greater Fort Meade real estate market, we are still leaning towards sellers, but buyers are starting to see some benefits including less purchase competition.Anne Arundel County MD Real estate and home values 8-2022
