The National Association of REALTORS® reported that home prices continued to rise in the third quarter of 2022. Forty-six percent of the metro markets posted double-digit annual price appreciation this quarter compared to 80% in the previous quarter. National median prices rose 8.6% year over year to $398,500. While median home prices rose by 8.6%, year-over-year price appreciation decelerated compared to the previous quarter's 14.2%.

This quarter's monthly mortgage payments on a single-family home increased to $1,840 compared to $1,226 from a year ago. Qualifying median family incomes rose to $88,331 compared to the second quarter of 2022, which was $88,200, and $58,826 a year ago. The effective 30-year fixed mortgage rate increased to 5.65% in the third quarter of 2022 compared to 2.92% one year ago.

Knowing the mortgage rates and the qualifying incomes for down payments will help potential homeowners figure out what metro areas are affordable.

Here is a look at the metro areas with the strongest price growth in the third quarter of 2022, as well as the yearly change in median existing single-family home prices among the top five highest and lowest-growth metro areas of the third quarter of 2022.

Andy sold it quickly after it sat with another agent!

Our home had been on the market for 4 months with a previous agent. My husband found Andy on a real estate group. Andy was very knowledgeable in my area. He suggested making a few minor updates and listed our house for $30k more than it was previously listed for. It took Andy about 2 weeks after listing it to get 2 offers on my house. We finally closed on our house after an offer of only $5K off of ask.
