Summary:

With sales and prices moving lower, and inventory increasing, it’s pretty clear that the market is slow. In more typical years past, we would have seen higher gains in sales resulting in less available inventory earlier in the year. Prices have remained fairly stable, although high inventory is likely to exert some downward pressure on prices and we may be seeing the start of that in this month’s results.

In any event, current economic conditions don’t support a strong real estate market at this time. Interest rates remain high, inflation is still a concern, and there’s continuing feeling of uncertainty about where the economy is going that is having a dampening effect on home sales.

Homes are still being bought and sold – just a bit more slowly than we’ve become accustomed to. And we’re still not seeing either any major instability or stimulus affecting real estate specifically at the local, state or national levels. We think we’ll see little change through the remainder of the summer and into fall. But we’ll be keeping a close eye on what’s happening, and we’ll let you know what we’re seeing and thinking.

In the meantime, please give us a call if you have any questions or just want to chat about what’s happening – we’d love to talk to you.
