July Market Indicators

Across the Triangle, the Median Home Price dropped slightly after peaking in June. Despite the modest drop, home prices are still boasting the highest values in a decade. Inventory continued to move quickly as Days on the Market steadily declined, a trend we’ve seen since early 2016. New Listings and Under Contract sales also decreased slightly, resulting in Available Inventory and Months Supply of Inventory levels beginning to increase. However, the inventory of homes less than $300,000 continues to remain limited.
