Median sales prices for homes across Ada County continue to trend upwards but at a slightly slower rate than what we've been seeing over the past year. And while the number of homes listed on the market (i.e. inventory) has increased over the past several months, it still hasn't increased enough to match the buyer demand we're continuing to see.

As you likely know, there have been some changes on the national level that may impact our real estate market. Last month, in an effort to address our country's widespread inflation (the highest in 40 years) the Federal Reserve made moves to increase interest rates. In a nutshell, higher interest rates will effectively lower buying power & slow down the lending application process. While economics and industry leaders expect the housing market to remain competitive, there will most likely be a shift from the frenzied state we experienced last year.

So what does that mean for you?

 SUMMARY:  If you group together both existing and newly constructed single-family homes and compare those numbers to the same month one year ago (detailed in the top infographic): inventory increased by a notable 63.9%, the median sales price increased by 20% (coming in at $540,000) and they took a longer amount of time to go under contract (37 days opposed to 18).

If you then examine just existing/resale homes (and remove all the newly constructed homes from the statistics); the median sales price increased by 18.4% (coming in at $515,100), inventory increased by 79.6% & homes are sitting on the market for a longer period than they were one year ago (33 days, opposed to just 13).

And finally, if you look just at newly constructed homes; new homes are selling for a median sales price of $588,945 (a year-over-year increase of 28%), there are more of them available than there were one year ago (inventory is up by 54.2%) and they are staying active on the market for a longer period of time (44 days compared to 25).
