Home buyers are still snatching up homes at a quick pace. Homes sold more quickly in October than in any October in recent history, according to realtor.com®’s Monthly Housing Report.
The typical home spent just 45 days on the market in October, reaching an eight-month streak of homes selling faster than in any month before 2021, realtor.com® says.
“The year may be winding down, but 2021’s feverish pace of home sales continues to hit new records,” says Danielle Hale, realtor.com®’s chief economist. “Despite returns to more typical pre-COVID seasonality which means a slower fall versus summer season, October housing data suggests that demand is still unseasonably high.”
