Home inventory in Sioux Falls, sales down even as prices remain high


The national housing market is experiencing a major shift, according to the latest data report from the Realtors Association of the Sioux Empire (RASE).

Inflation and rising borrowing costs hurt buyers’ purchasing power, causing the market to cool, RASE said. As a result, the number of listings and home sales are down, even though prices remain high.

The National Association of Realtors predicts that many homeowners are waiting for market conditions to improve before selling their homes, as “affordability continues to be a barrier” for buyers and sellers, according to the report.
