  • The average price rose by 5.5% to $258,587.

What they’re saying

“With pent-up demand, consumers appear to finally be pushing aside interest rate concerns and returning to the market,” HAR Chair Thomas Mouton said in a statement. “The increase in home sales, slight appreciation in home prices and expanding inventory creates opportunities for both buyers and sellers in the marketplace.”
