Less active than six months ago, but stronger than 2019 (before the pandemic triggered our real estate frenzy). We’re making our way to a more balanced market (stats provided by DMAR).
Inventory: A small decline between Oct. and Sept., but year-over-year, we have a whopping 116% more homes for sale. However, it’s about 15% less than we had in October 2019.
Days On The Market: Properties are staying on the market much longer (we had fewer new homes last month). Yet this time in 2019, homes were on the market for over a month (33 days). Deals are still moving a bit faster.
Sales Price: With a smaller pool of buyers, many sellers did make price reductions. Not a surprise; our average closing price dipped. But in October 2019, it was $486,390 - homes have gained 26% in value. Incredible…
Yes, the pullback has been jolting – over 7% mortgage rates? Listings taking almost a month to go under contract at the asking price?
