Home Prices at All-time Highs, Again

The median price for single-family, re-sale homes stayed over $1,000,000 for the fifth month in a row and fourteen of the past fifteen months.

Sales of single-family, re-sale homes fell, year-over-year, and were lower than the month before, which is unusual.

Active listings continue to be anemic, down by double-digits for the eleventh month in a row. Pending sales showed double-digit losses for the ninth month in a row.

Anecdotally, we’ve been hearing that multiple offers are declining. Rather than eight to ten offers on a home, many homes are selling with less than three offers.

This could be a result of buyers’ exhaustion, and could portend a slowing of the market.

Although, with a sales price to list price ratio of 111.1% last month, which is a record high, demand seems to be strong.

The sales price to list price ratio has been over 100% for thirty-seven months in a row.
