Return to Normalcy?
After red-hot start, Gallatin County real estate market closes year with more typical numbers
Gallatin County’s residential real estate market entered 2022 in an extreme seller’s market, with historically low inventory and lightning fast sales. While still in seller’s market territory, the market closed out 2022 with more typical numbers.
“After an extended period of time in uncharted seller’s market territory, the Gallatin County real estate market closed out 2022 at a more normal pace,” said Jim Gingery, 2023 GAR Board President. “In December we saw fewer sales, fewer new listings, and increased inventory with homes spending more time on the market. While those may look like indicators of a downturn, it’s important to remember that our market has been performing at unprecedented levels. Our market is still in seller’s market territory, and prices increased once again as we closed out the year.”
