The 30-day trend for the average list price fell marginally for all categories except condominiums/townhomes while the opposite trend occurred with the average sold price. Luxury condominiums/townhomes had a double digit rise in the 30-day trend for average sold price with a 12.1 percent increase.  When considering all categories, the average days on market and average days sold fluctuated up and down during the past 30 days.  The market has experienced a substantial rise in the number of active listings with the 30-day trend for all categories contributing to any additional 223 listings or a 15 percent increase in available properties for sale.

Not too much can be discerned from the mix trends with average days on market or sold but the marginal drop in average list price along with the substantial increase in supply suggest that the market is cooling off.  However, the trend for average sold price also suggests that buyers are paying more than asking to get the home of their choosing. No doubt that building supply chain issues are going to help the resale housing market as builders are having to wait longer to get materials. But inflation is going to keep an upward push on the market prices especially while new housing becomes more and more stagnant.  Time will tell if the rising interest rates will help to curtail prices but they are still relatively and historically low. 

No matter the market condition opportunity can present itself.  For example, investors may just want out of the market for a variety of reasons and for tax purposes may be willing to list at below market values. Other times a listed investment property comes with a substantial amount of future revenue. Such opportunities only come to those who are actively looking and ready to pounce.
