Omaha continues to be a seller's market, but there is one small change in the data to pay attention to.


If you are a homeowner, you are seeing a lot of appreciation in your home. For 2020, home prices appreciated 8.3%. In 2019, home prices went up 5% compared to 2018. 

One interesting change in the data is the 9.5% increase in new listings compared to December of last year. Omaha has an inventory problem so if more homes hit the market, that's a good thing.

I love talking about real estate.

And there is never a shortage of people asking me about the current market. Everyone wants to know.
