– Home Sales, Prices Show Stability, Even Strength During Typical Seasonal Slowdown
Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage, today released its Real-Time Home Price Tracker, based on October 2013 home prices, sales volume and inventory across 19 major U.S. markets.
Year over year, the housing market has shown stability and even resilience through the seasonal slowdown. The 19-market median sale price dropped just 0.9 percent from September, but was up 15.3 percent from the same time last year. Home sales followed the same pattern, dropping 1 percent in October, but increasing 0.6 percent year over year. Inventory, on the other hand, dropped 5.5 percent month over month and 10.4 percent year over year.
This report is the earliest monthly analysis of primary housing-market metrics, and is based on local databases used by Realtors to list properties and record sales.
