Forty-nine percent of July single-family home sales closed above the original asking price compared to 70% one year ago and 62% one month ago. Although the majority, or 66%, of sold single-family homes received the full asking price or more, that share also fell compared to 79% of sales during the same time last year. The portion of condo sales that closed above the original asking price was 37%, nearly flat with the previous year’s 38%, but down slightly compared to recent months. Sixty percent of closed condo sales in July received the full asking price or more compared to 62% both a year ago and last month.
