A shifting market

May’s sale-to-list price ratio dropped to 88.5%. This is the lowest this ratio has been since I’ve been tracking the housing market data. The chart below shows the last 12 months of data for this metric.

Notice that just two months ago May’s sale-to-list price ratio was above 100% — 102.2% to be precise. April and May’s falling sale-to-list price ratio shows a shift from prior months. Home buyers seem to be negotiating lower purchase prices for the homes that they are buying.

And with current inventory up 67% over this time last month, the current market is shifting to more of a “Buyer’s market”, than a “Seller’s market”.

Signs of the shifting housing market can also be seen with the number of price reductions, as well as with increasing days on market, as mentioned above. Of the 75 SFR homes currently available for purchase, 20 (or 26.7%) have undergone at least one price reduction.
