November 2022 Market Update

Existing-home sales fell for the tenth consecutive month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.09 million. Sales slipped 7.7% from October and 35.4% from the previous year.

The median existing-home sales price rose to $370,700, an increase of 3.5% from one year ago.

The inventory of unsold existing homes retreated for the fourth straight month to 1.14 million at the end of November, or the equivalent of 3.3 months’ supply at the current monthly sales pace.

“In essence, the residential real estate market was frozen in November, resembling the sales activity seen during the COVID-19 economic lockdowns in 2020,” said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “The principal factor was the rapid increase in mortgage rates, which hurt housing affordability and reduced incentives for homeowners to list their homes. Plus, available housing inventory remains near historic lows.”
