More Home Sellers are Dropping Prices

A large chunk of homes were sold for more than their asking price in September, according to a recent report from Redfin. Redfin found that In the four weeks ending on September 23, 22.9 percent of homes sold for more than their asking price. However, the report notes that this represents a 2.6 percentage point decline year over year, when 25.5 percent of homes sold above their list price.

"With home price growth slowing to 4.7 percent in August, and a record-high share of sellers dropping their prices, the fact that fewer homes are selling above their asking price is another indication that competition is getting less intense than it has been in recent years," said Redfin Senior Economist Taylor Marr. "Inventory pressures are easing in the hottest markets, which is welcome news for homebuyers who are increasingly able to submit an offer without competition and get bids accepted without offering above list price.
