Sales Prices

  • The typical U.S. home is selling for around $383,000
  • This is just $4,000 less (-1%) than the all-time high recorded last June
  • The average home is now selling for its asking price

The minimal year-over-year drop in home-sale prices and the 100% sale-to-list price ratio are clear indicators of a stabilizing housing market.

Supply & Demand Dynamics

  • New listings fell 27% from a year ago, the largest drop since the pandemic started
  • Inventory is falling due to high mortgage rates
  • Homeowners are holding onto their properties to maintain their comparatively low rates

In spite of the high rates deterring some homebuyers, they still outnumber home sellers. This implies that buyers are purchasing homes faster than they're being listed, thereby keeping home prices stable.
