2021 was a great year for home sales in fact more homes sold in 2021 than in any year since 2005. That means that there were fewer home sales in 2020 and there will be fewer home sales in 2022.
At this point, I am not sure what the latest numbers mean. Houses are selling quickly and on average they are selling for more than the asking price. Here is part of a report about home sales in Ransey county compared with last year. The only number I find at all concerning is the fact that there are fewer homes going on the market but home sales are projected to be lower in 2022 than they were in 2021 and if fewer homes are listed fewer will be sold.
