Do you think real estate markets may have reached a 'bottom' - or close - at the end of 2022? It appears this may be the case in many markets around the U.S. where January is producing a notable shift in mood and activity.

Here are 6 reasons why Q4 of 2022 was the bottom of the recent real estate market cycle. 👇

1️⃣ 25% increase in weekly mortgage applications.
2️⃣ Mortgage rates continue to move down to a 4-month low.
3️⃣ Increase in buyer interest, open house traffic, and offers.
4️⃣ In the last quarter of 2022, 42% of sellers were giving concessions to buyers at the closing table, a 10-year high.
5️⃣ Home builder sentiment improved for the first time in 1 year.
6️⃣ Pending closings were down 30+% at points in the fall but over the last few weeks, we have seen pending listings in most of our markets nearly flat year over year.

Mexico’s richest man Carlos Slim re-lists NYC’s largest townhouse for $80M.
⠀
📍 1009 Fifth Avenue, Upper East Side, Manhattan
8 Beds | 10 Baths | 20,000 SF
⠀
If the property sells for that princely eight-figure sum, it would break a record for the most expensive townhouse ever sold in the Big Apple. 😱
⠀
The interiors feature marble fireplaces and ornate moldings throughout, a grand staircase that climbs up through five levels, and a skylight on the top floor. The terrace and rooftop provide panoramic views of Central Park and the city skyline.
⠀
The building can be reimagined as a private residence or converted into a gallery, store, museum, or foundation given its prime location across the Met Museum. Don't miss out on this exceptional opportunity

#Compass San Francisco December 2022 Market Snapshots
⠀
Tens of thousands of Bay Area homes continued to sell, a considerable, but declining percentage still selling quickly at over asking price. For sellers, pricing, preparation, and marketing are now critical, while buyers shouldn't hesitate to negotiate aggressively, especially on homes with longer days-on-market.
⠀
The early spring market would typically provide the next major indicator of market direction, but developments may occur sooner to provide increased clarity regarding what awaits us in 2023.
