Existing-Home Sales Decreased to 4.09 million SAAR in November; Median Prices Down 10.4% from Peak in June 2022


Today, in the CalculatedRisk Real Estate Newsletter: NAR: Existing-Home Sales Decreased to 4.09 million SAAR in November

Excerpt: On prices, the NAR reported: The median existing-home price for all housing types in November was $370,700, an increase of 3.5% from November 2021 ($358,200), as prices rose in all regions. This marks 129 consecutive months of year-over-year increases, the longest-running streak on record.Median prices are distorted by the mix (repeat sales indexes like Case-Shiller and FHFA are probably better for measuring prices).

The YoY change in the median price peaked at 25.2% in May 2021 and has now slowed to 3.5%. The YoY increase in November was the lowest since June 2020. Note that the median price usually starts falling seasonally in July, so the 2.1% decline in November in the median price was partially seasonal, however the 10.4% decline over the last five months has been much larger than the usual seasonal decline.

It is likely the median price will be down year-over-year in a few months – and Case-Shiller will follow.There is much more in the article.  You can subscribe at Please subscribe!
