A good time for buyers to be picky

Active listings have been steadily climbing over the last few months and August 2023 is no exception. With almost 10,000 active listings and an average of 60 days on the market, this is a good time for buyers to take their time to find the house in the location and with the features they are looking for.


However, August showed some good activity with an increase in closed sales of almost 9% compared to July and a slight increase in pending sales YoY. 

Median sales price is at $460,000. A slight decline to July, an increase to January this year ($450,000), and a 7.6% decrease since August last year (July’s median sales price was 10% lower than last year’s). 

It is still a complicated market with many different moving parts. Interest rates are expected to rise again at the end of the year, and we need to keep a close eye on what this means for the market in the meantime. With buying power anticipated to be lower with higher mortgage rates, this could mean higher need now.
