The last few months, mortgage rates spiked and scared away many buyers. However, in November we saw mortgage rates come down nearly a 1/2 point which gave many buyers a new perspective on what they think a good rate may be.

We also saw home prices settle down. Year-over-year values increased 4.4%, while declining 8% from the record prices this past April. We believe this to be more about seasonality returning to our market—meaning traditionally the highest home prices each year are achieved during the summer months when there is more demand.

Our market has definitely changed from an extreme seller’s market in late spring to a balanced market currently. Active listings are up 200% BUT that is from an extreme scarcity of listings last year (561) to a more reasonable number today (1682). To put this in perspective, 10 years ago we had 2657 active listings on the market in November in a market most thought was healthy.

When we look at sales we see a similar trend. The number of sales in November was 727 which was down nearly 25% from 2021. However, it was still more than the number of sales achieved in any November during 2012-2015.
