The median price of a house sold in January was $310,000, down a bit from December but up 9 percent from a year ago. House sales totaled 1,146, also down from December but up from a year ago.
The supply-and-demand balance continues to shift away from the strong buyer’s market of recent years. There was a 5.3-month supply of houses for sale last month, up 10 percent from a year ago. And the typical listing needed 57 days to find a buyer willing to sign on the dotted line, also up 10 percent.
As for condos and townhouses, the median price of a unit sold last month was $150,000 — the lowest level since February 2016.
The Realtors Association also releases city-by-city breakdowns of median price. Here are the regions that reported 50 or more sales last month — and a caveat that the median price combines houses and condos:
