Real estate prices rise, sales fall across New York State


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — New York State Association of Realtors (NYSAR) has released its August 2022 New York State housing market report. The report shows that housing prices across the state rose while home sales declined.

NYSAR said closed sales fell 10.9% in August from 15,367 homes in 2021 to 13,740 last month. Pending home sales decreased from 14,464 homes in August 2021 to 13,740 in 2022 for a 5% decline. New home listings fell from 18,099 listings in August 2021 to 15,344 a month ago.

The median sales price of homes across the state rose 3.8% in August from $390,000 in 2021 to
$405,000. NYSAR said this marks 28 consecutive months that median sales prices have increased. Home inventory also fell 15.5% from 46,367 homes in August 2021 to 39,179 in August 2022.

“Good news for homebuyers as mortgage interest rates dropped slightly last month. According to Freddie Mac, the monthly average on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage fell from 5.41% in July 2022 to 5.22% in August 2022. This is still over two percentage points higher than the rate of 2.84% in August 2021,” said the report.
