Foster Real Estate Report: March 2024 market update

Share this story:

Coming from a different angle this month for our market update – I thought this “Housing Shortage Tracker” would be an interesting chart to share with prospective buyers.

This chart shows metro areas across the nation that have insufficient housing supply. The good news for our local market is that we have a Sufficient Supply according to this chart.

Local Market Update: March 22, 2024

Turning to our local housing market and the chart below, our local Supply in Johnson County is more than 13.3 percent. Buyers do have some options. Closed Sales were down by nearly 10 percent in February 2024 compared to last year. However, the Average Sales Price increased more than more than 6 percent and Median Sales Price increased at 3.7 percent. This supports that our local real estate continues to appreciate on average in comparison to last year. Here’s a great number to see that our market activity is steady with Pending Sales up by more than 20 percent.
