Home Demand Index | Historical Year-over-Year Comparison

Demand for homes has fallen for three consecutive months. Some of the decline reflected the usual seasonal slowdown in buyer interest heading into the last months of the year. Also contributing to the decrease were higher mortgage interest rates and elevated inflation, which have reduced affordability for buyers.
