Is the Real Estate Market Starting To Cool a Bit?

**Graph from National Association of Realtors**
Industry experts are starting to see signs that may indicate that the real estate market is starting to cool down a bit. Some buyers have been sitting on the sidelines because they have been getting squeezed by increasing mortgage rates and prices climbing faster than incomes.

National homes sales dropped in June for the third straight month. New home sales are the slowest in the last 8 months. Inventory of homes for sale is growing along with the number of days a home stays on the market.

I monitor a subdivision known as Cherry Creek Vista in the Denver Tech Center. Earlier this year there were weeks when there were 0 homes Active on the market. As soon as a home hit the market it went Under Contract. There are now 17 homes on the market there and the average number of days on the market has climbed from 5 days to 34 days.

All of that is positive news for the buyers that were reluctant to join the bidding wars. A cooling real estate market is a more stablized and more sustainable market.
