Sellers Push Asking Prices Up 12% to All-Time High
Nationally, in the four-week period prior to September 26th, sellers demonstrated their optimism through increasing asking prices up 12% year-over-year.
There has been some seasonal or overall cooling, with sales being up only 4%, the smallest year-over-year increase since June of 2020; fewer than half of homes selling above listing price; and new listings being down 20% from their 2021 high.
