Contract Volume and Net New Listing Volume Experienced the Largest Off-Seasonal Decrease Since Initial COVID-19 Lockdowns as a Result of Recent Interest Rate Shocks

Year-Over-Year Volume of Price Drops Are Up 110%, As Would-Be Sellers Face Competition Among Smaller Pool of Buyers

Year-Over-Year Change in Net New Inventory Was Positive for All Price Bins Above $200k

SAN FRANCISCO, August 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HouseCanary, Inc. ("HouseCanary"), a national brokerage known for its real estate valuation accuracy, today released its latest Market Pulse report, covering 22 listing-derived metrics and comparing data between July 2021 and July 2022. The Market Pulse is an ongoing review of proprietary data and insights from HouseCanary’s nationwide platform.

Jeremy Sicklick, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of HouseCanary, commented:

"In July, economic uncertainty and another steep interest rate hike from the Fed appeared to have impacted both seller and buyer behavior. On one hand, elevated rates have contributed to a decrease in new net listing volume with would-be sellers sitting on high amounts of equity and locked-in low mortgage rates; on the other hand, demand has decreased also due in part to the sharp increase in interest rates, which had deterred potential buyers. Consequently, these opposing forces have pushed price growth into negative territory, even though prices remain at a record high and the nationwide supply shortage we have experienced since 2020 persists. The current market environment is showing some initial signs of cooling and could potentially signal a normalization of supply and demand in the coming months. Looking forward, we are monitoring for any disruption of balance between low demand and low supply, particularly anything that could lead to a significant increase in supply with no reduction in rates that would set the market up for substantial price decreases."
