The housing landscape in September 2023 painted a fascinating narrative proving real estate's fundamental principle: "location, location, location." Even in the face of interest rate challenges, the real estate market here continues to maintain a relatively steady course.
According to the latest housing data, September 2023 saw a 4% decline in the number of homes sold compared to the previous year. Furthermore, although fewer homes were listed, there was an increase of 0.4% in the median price. Those stable pricing trends are believed to be the result of a continued limited supply. The good news for luxury home sellers here is that this segment of the market remains robust, reflecting a sense of optimism and confidence within the high-end real estate sector.
