Home prices rose in Cass County in October, but the inventory of homes for sale nationwide fell to its lowest level in over two decades. This decrease in inventory reflects a decline in demand for homes, which is reflected in higher prices and fewer available listings. However, a slowdown in inventory is not the end of the housing market in Cass County, and home prices are expected to rise in November.
New listings increased in October
Metro Vancouver home sales remained above their 10-year averages in October. While home sales in October decreased 5.2 per cent from last year’s October, they increased 11.4 per cent from the September 2021 month. This increase means that Metro Vancouver’s housing market is still more than two-thirds above its 10-year average.
Inventory of homes for sale fell by 14.4 percent between September and October, compared to last year. The number of homes for sale decreased by 2.9% and the average number of days on the homes for sale in 46032 market decreased by 7.6 percent. Despite the decreased inventory, home prices were still up nearly six percent year-over-year. However, the median home price has been trending downward since April.

National inventory of homes for sale fell to its lowest level in more than two decades in October
Rising mortgage rates and rising home prices have dampened the affordability of homes, and the housing market has continued to suffer. The number of homes for sale fell for six consecutive months in October, with the median home price down over 9% from a year ago. The housing market’s lack of supply exacerbated the ongoing shortage of existing homes, which buyers snapped up just days after they hit the market. Although the number of homes for sale has decreased, economists say the housing market is likely to reach a healthy balance by 2022.
The lack of supply has boosted home prices, and lower-than-average interest rates have boosted investor demand. But the lack of supply has created a situation where traditional home buyers are facing stiff competition. As a result, builders have shied away from new construction. In addition, lack of skilled workers has prevented them from completing new construction, reducing the supply of homes for sale. As a result, building permits for new construction fell by 24% in 2020 and haven’t recovered in 2022.
