As Inventory Rises, June Home Sales After Year High, But Trail 2021

DENVER, July 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Midway through the peak summer buying season, home sales this year are trailing those of 2021 as signs of a more balanced market emerge.

  • June saw the highest number of home sales of any month so far this year, outpacing May by 4.7% but falling 17.6% to June 2021.
  • Inventories rose for a third straight month, rising 34.1% from May and 27.5% year-over-year.
  • Although up 11% year-over-year, the median sale price of $428,000 just 0.6% above May.

Strengthening inventory was a 7.7% increase in new listings month-over-month, up 1.6% from June 2021. Month Provide inventories rose from 0.9 in May to 1.4 in June. A year ago, months of inventory supply was 1.0.

“The market is moving towards a better balance, especially with inventory gains and slowing price appreciation. The past few years have been one of the most competitive times ever for buyers – and we let’s finally see the conditions easing,” said Nick Bailey, Chairman and CEO. “Part of this is due to rising interest rates – although buyers are also finding solutions in ARMs, FHA products and other financing – but even more important is the increase in listings after several years of instant sales and low inventory.Markets like Nashville and Phoenix saw an increase in new listings of more than 20% last month, providing new options for buyers who may have been sidelined in last year’s frenzy.”

Added RE/MAX Professionals Sales Associate/Owner Nate Martinez, who is based in PhoenixA-Z, “The Phoenix The metropolitan area is transitioning from a booming market to a more balanced market. With inventory increasing, we are seeing more opportunities for buyers, a leveling out of home prices, and a reduction in home sales with multiple offers.”

Report details
Starting with the April 2022 report, RE/MAX uses a new source of aggregated data.

The RE/MAX National Housing Report is distributed monthly on or about the 15th. The report is based on MLS data for the month indicated in 53 metropolitan areas, includes single-family residential property types, and is not annualized. For maximum representation, the largest metropolitan areas in the country are represented and an attempt is made to include at least one metropolitan area in nearly every state. Metropolitan areas are defined by Central Statistical Areas (CBSAs) established by the US Office of Management and Budget.

Closed deals are the total number of residential deals closed in the given month. Month Provide inventory is the total number of residential properties listed for sale at the end of the month (current inventory) divided by the number of sales contracts signed (pending listings) during the month. When “pending” data is not available, an inferred pending status is calculated using closed transactions. Days on Market is the average number of days between when a property is listed and when the property is under contract. The median selling price for a metropolitan area is the median selling price of transactions made in that metropolitan area. The nationwide median selling price is calculated at the nationwide aggregate level using all included metropolitan area selling prices. The near list price ratio is the average value of the sale price divided by the list price for each closed transaction.

MLS data is provided by Seventy3, LLC, a RE/MAX Holdings company. Although MLS data is believed to be reliable, it cannot be guaranteed. MLS data is constantly updated, making any analysis a snapshot at any given time. Each month, data from the previous period is updated to ensure accuracy over time. Raw data remains the intellectual property of each local MLS organization.
