Richard Haggerty, CEO OneKey MLS, said, “The pandemic induced market conditions of 2020, 2021, and 2022 were extraordinary and price appreciation across our region was steep. Now that home prices are starting to soften we must remind ourselves to view the market numbers in the context of those unusual circumstances.” Haggerty remains optimistic that the spring market will be active, but expects a delayed start as people wait to see how the dust settles around the latest headlines, inflation and mortgage rates.
