While inventory and sales have dipped, home prices have increased in both month-over-month and year-over-year numbers.
April’s benchmark sales price sits at $550,800, a 1.6% increase from March and a 1.2% increase compared to 2022.
What is a benchmark price? The benchmark price is the estimated value of a “typical” home in a community, based on the most popular combination of features, e.g. age, size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms.
Sales and Inventory
April clocked in 2,690 sales which is around 20% lower than April of 2022. Inventory also decreased by nearly 34% compared to April 2022.
Although April’s inventory has remained on the lower end, buyers are making higher offers, contributing to the “stronger than expected gains in home prices.”
