August 2022 - Omaha Area Real Estate Market Statistics

The Great Plains Regional MLS August 2022 real estate report is out and here’s what it says:

“Summer 2022 has been a season of change for the U.S. real estate market. With housing affordability at a 33-year low, existing-home sales have continued to soften nationwide, falling 5.9% month-to-month and 20.9% year-over-year as of last measure, according to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). Pending home sales have also continued to decline, while new listings have steadily increased, with unsold inventory reaching 3.3 months’ supply at the start of August. The pullback in demand has been particularly hard on homebuilders, causing new-home sales and construction to slow.”

“Inflation, higher interest rates, and fears of a potential recession have taken a toll on buyers and sellers this summer, leading many people to stay on the sidelines to see what will happen with the market. But some experts, including NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, believe the worst of inflation may be over. Although sales prices remain up from this time last year, price growth is expected to moderate in the months ahead as the market continues to shift in a more buyer-friendly direction.”

The Bottom line:

Sales prices are still higher from this time last year, but the increase in sales price is expected to cool down in the coming months. Experts are foreseeing a more buyer-friendly shift in the real estate market.

Let’s take a look at some of the numbers from August 2022
