Market Shift: Home Prices Cool as Sellers Adapt to New Real Estate Landscape


Even though home prices have risen compared to a year ago, there are indications that the market's fervor is subsiding. Recent reports suggest that price gains are tapering off and home sellers are becoming more willing to negotiate following a slow spring season. According to Redfin, for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the typical home in the U.S. sold for slightly less than its asking price – approximately 0.3 percent lower – in the four weeks ending June 23. A year ago at the same time, homes were typically selling at their list price, while two years ago they were selling at around 2 percent above list price.

Despite this shift, just under two-thirds of homes still sold above their asking price in the past month. Mortgage rates remain high, with the average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage hovering above 7 percent for the third consecutive month, according to Mortgage News Daily. However, there is a growing supply of homes on the market. Total active listings are now 35 percent higher compared to this time last year, as reported by Realtor.com.
