National Market Statistics

    Soaring interest rates were the dominant factor in October's market, but a large drop occurred in November, which many analysts expect to continue. Inflation dropped in the latest reading, a very positive development for economic conditions, interest rates, and housing and financial markets. In a typical seasonal trend, the monthly median house sales price in October 2023 declined slightly from September - but was up 3% year-over-year. Long-term, annual median house sales prices since 1980, with an estimate for 2023 YTD.  Q3 median house price appreciation since 1990. Over the long term, home-price appreciation has far outpaced inflation. Q3 median house prices - and year-over-year appreciation rates - across a wide range of major U.S. metro areas. 80% saw y-o-y price increases. A survey of national home sales by price segment.

This huge reservoir of household wealth has almost certainly increased all-cash purchases. As a percentage of total sales, all-cash purchases remain at their highest level in 9 years. These buyers are less concerned about interest rates. After a steep plunge in October, stock markets have seen an astounding recovery in November. An unfortunate consequence of increasing interest rates, low supply, and a 2023 rebound in demand has been the lowest housing affordability in decades.
