High prices and mortgage rates give prospective sellers little incentive to list their homes. • Median Closed prices have been declining steadily following their peak in the spring of 2022. They dipped again in January and are now 14% lower than the 2021 peak. Home prices are staying in check as buyers exercise their negotiating power.
