  • Inventory: November listings (677) increased 2.6% from October and increased 29.7% from one year ago. At the current sales pace, all the active inventory on the market would sell in 4.7 months, down from 4.8 months in October and up from 4.1 months in November 2022. The equilibrium point where buyers and sellers have roughly equal bargaining power is 4-5 months of supply.
  • Pricing: The area’s median sales price in November was $321,450, a decrease of 2.6% from one year ago and a decrease of 5.5% from October. The differing sample size (number of residential sales of comparative months) can contribute to statistical volatility, including pricing. ACRE recommends consulting with a local real estate professional to discuss pricing, as it will vary from neighborhood to neighborhood. Homes sold in November averaged 29 days on the market, 9 days slower than November 2022.
  • Forecast: November sales were 13 units, or 9.6%, above the Alabama Center for Real Estate’s (ACRE) monthly forecast. ACRE projected 131 sales, and actual sales were 144 units.
