Market Trends:

– Interest rates have risen from 3-4% to 6.5-8%.

– Some areas experience longer listing times and more price reductions.

– Some properties still receive multiple offers.

– Inventory remains low, preventing a full shift to a buyer’s market.

– Hot markets see appreciation; slower markets see depreciation.

Forecast:

– 2024 likely slower than 2023.

– Sales volumes dropping, but still significant activity.

– Last year saw 13,000 sales, compared to the market low of 8,900 in 2007-2009.

In summary, 2024 is shaping up to be slower than 2023. While catching up is possible, it’s unlikely, given the trends. Sales volumes have dropped significantly, but there are still plenty of transactions happening. Last year, we saw 13,000 sales, which is strong compared to the 8,900 sales at the market’s lowest point in 2007-2009.
