Chris Heller, Co-founder of Agent Advice has commented on the findings: “The U.S. housing market is estimated to be worth $43.4 trillion in 2023. To take advantage of this, both consumers and agents alike must understand the ever-changing nature of the real estate market.”
“Overall, there has been an increase in cost in the last three years throughout the nation. However, this research shows that there has also been a depreciation in multiple states over the last two years, showing a rise in more affordable housing.
“In Hawaii, for example, the typical cost of housing increased by 25% in the last three years; this decreased to 2.98% in the last two years. So, it will be interesting to see if the cost of housing will eventually decrease.”
