Nationally, some real estate gurus expect conditions to become more balanced soon, according to one Zillow projection. The article says the U.S. market is reaching an inflection point and supply will be more plentiful. This means price increases are expected to slow, but not necessarily that a crash or pricing drops will occur.

In Lexington, real estate supply has seen an increase this spring. There were 858 homes for sale in March 2022, and there were 954 listings in April, according to Rocket Homes. This is an increase of 11.2% month to month. Four-bedroom homes saw the largest increase in number of listings, while one-bedrooms had no change.

Although there are more homes available than in previous months, they’re still going fast. Of the 329 houses Rocket Homes says were sold in April 2022, 95% sold in less than 30 days. Nine homes were sold in 30 to 90 days, and only six were sold in more than 90 days.
