Prices have been rising due to high buyer demand and a lack of inventory. Inventories are less than half the total number of homes for sale on the market compared to a year ago.
“Home buyers looking to lock in still-low mortgage rates face fierce competition for fewer homes for sale than last year’s historic pandemic lows, pushing up the typical asking price in May to an all-time high for the fourth consecutive month,” said Danielle Hale, realtor.com®’s chief economist. “The good news is that price momentum may be beginning to cool off.”
“While still in double-digits, May was the first non-weather related slowing in price appreciation since April 2020,” Hale added. “And with a normal, summer seasonal peak in home prices expected this year, we could see growth fall back to a more normal single-digit pace in the fall.”
Larger metros may post a slowdown sooner than other markets. The largest metros, for example, reported lower annual price gains than the national rate and also had some of the largest numbers of new homes added to the market, realtor.com® reported. The nation’s 50 largest metros had a 12.4% increase in new listings compared to a year ago. The largest gains were in Buffalo, N.Y. (up 64.3%); Philadelphia (up 52.5%); and Washington, D.C. (up 48.9%).
Overall, among the 50 largest U.S. metros, the largest list price increases in May occurred in Austin, Texas (+32.2%); Riverside, Calif. (+21.5%); and Las Vegas (+18.5%).

Recently Barry & Kim with the Hoey Team halped a number of sellers who had been in Foreberance and we were able to get them to a "good place"; worry free. We help people in many different situations; everybody's situation is different; if you know someone needing help; have them reach out to us in confidence: 239-360-5527 ☘
As people continue to move and relocate to the area from other parts of the United States, it is important that we are able to serve all of the area, and offer many different Choices and Lifestyles which are in abundance here in SW FLA 🌴
Inventory remains low overall, but we do continue to list and market new properties to the marketplace and we sell many different type homes; Resale & New Construction; Multigenerational Family Compounds, Regular Single Family Homes, Villas, Townhomes and all Condo types, from low rise, to waterfront high rise right on the beach.
We have also seen an uptake in people planning ahead, and buying that second home now, rather than waitiang as they were planning to do; especially with Snowmads and Zoombirds. Previously we had Snowbirds; interesting how terminology keeps changing.
Lower interest rates are probably helping with the increased sales; oftentimes over asking price. Low inventory is the greatest chalenge for buyers; but if prepared you are ahead of the game; ask how we can help. We recently got an amazing deal for a buyer on a Waterfront Condo with Boat Dock; and we are working on others; so there are deals out there; if you work with us, we will find them.
