What's Happening in the STL Market?

We are seeing a transition from the spring market. However, it is still a highly competitive market and the housing fundamentals are still strong. Here's stats from July:

  • Average days on market only 19 (down from 21 in 2021)
  • 1.6 months supply of inventory (same as 2021)
  • Average home sold 3.5% OVER list price in July (same as 2021)
  • 2/3 homes priced between $200-350k go under contract in the first weekend 

St. Louis hasn't seen a huge slowdown because our homes are below national average, meaning higher interest rates don't impact our market as significantly has markets with $1m homes. We still are severely lacking supply with no increase in homes available and still high demand. We didn't see 40% yoy growth like other markets. Instead we saw a steady increase over the past few years that are in line with the past 10 years. Indicating our increase isn't a bubble.
