The Hard Facts

  • The current median price list price remains flat from this time last month, residing currently at 385k
  • The supply of available homes is down by 4% from this time last month, with inventory at 4,680 listings
  • A home’s average days on market has increased from this time last year by 7% and currently resides at 44 days on the market

What Does This Mean For You?


Sellers, if you’re open to moving during the school year, now is a great time to sell! The average list price of the Raleigh real estate market remains high, take advantage and maximize your return on investment.

We are in a buyers market right now. You are able to receive more for your home due to the low inventory levels. Low inventory levels means that there are few homes listed in the market right now. This is great for sellers because this means that there is little competition for your Raleigh home. You will not have to compromise or negotiate as much, due to the low inventory levels and low competition.

Now is a great time to list your home and sell for maximum value! You will increase the inventory levels while also having time to find a home for yourself. The length of days on the market is longer during this season. This will give you time to prepare your home for showings and open houses. You can catch the eyes of buyers with your home, they will be on the lookout for their dream home during this season!


Buyers, the decrease in inventory is simply indicative of the fall season. With days on market on the rise, you have plenty of time to pursue the house that’s right for you. Get out there and find your dream home! You have plenty of options to move to your most desired locations, and Mark Spain Real Estate is here to help you achieve that!
