February 2022 Real Estate Market Update

Monthly I will be covering market statistics to keep you up to date with our ever-changing and complicated real estate market. I will be covering data for the entire Rochester, NY region.

Median Sales Price

The median sales price in Rochester, NY had a low of $115,000 in April 2016 and a high of $185,000 in October 2021. That is a 60% rise from April 2016 to October 2021. The national Median sales price for December 2021 was $382,690. That puts Rochester, NY 47.5% below the national median sales price. Rochester is not a very volatile real estate market compared to the rest of the country; we stay fairly consistent without huge gains or losses. The benefit of being so far below is that we have plenty of room to catch up with the national average.

Homes For Sale

The homes for sale directly correlate with the rise in the median sales price. This is due to the fact that supply has gone down from 7,579 homes to 1,808 homes for sale, a 419% decrease. Demand is on the other side of the equation which is harder to track. The bottom line is that lack of supply is the leading factor for the extreme tightness that we are experiencing in the market. This constriction can be directly seen on the next chart and felt if you’re an active buyer in our current market.
