December Housing Report

December 30, 2017

November became the sixth month of 2017 to post an increase in year-over-year home sales, bucking prolonged trends of home price increases and inventory declines, according to the December RE/MAX National Housing Report.

The sales increase of 1.1% came on the strength of increased transaction closings in 36 of the report’s 54 markets. At the same time, buyers felt increasing headwinds as the Median Sales Price rose to $227,500 and marked the 20th consecutive month of year-over-year home price increases. In fact, the Median Sales Price has increased year-over-year in 69 of the last 70 months dating back to February 2012.

November’s inventory decline of 14.5% extended the streak of consecutive months of fewer homes on the market to 108. The current streak started nine years ago, in November 2008, shortly after the RE/MAX National Housing Report was introduced.
