FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — OneKey® MLS is the one source real estate marketplace for monthly statistics for residential real estate transactions from Montauk to Manhattan, north through the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains. For August 2023, OneKey MLS reported a regional closed median sale price of $635,000, a 0.80% increase as compared to the $630,000 reported in July 2023.

OneKey® MLS, the largest MLS in New York, aggregates the real estate transactional data from nine counties making up the regional MLS coverage area, and reports individually on each county represented. The infographic demonstrates month-over-month closed median home price comparisons for the region.

Five of nine counties reported an increased closed median sale price in a month-over-month comparison, while four counties reported a decreased median sale price. Sullivan (+23.20%), Bronx (+15.20 %), Suffolk (+2.60 %), Rockland (+0.80%), and Nassau (+0.70%) Counties reported month-over-month increases in closed median sale price. Orange (-1.20%), Westchester (-3.3%), Queens (-4.4%), and Putnam (-6.10%) Counties reported month-over-month decreases in closed median sale price.

According to Richard Haggerty, CEO of OneKey MLS, there is a lack of inventory leading to the current market conditions. “If we can point to anything keeping sellers in place, it’s the current interest rates. There simply isn’t strong enough motivation for sellers to list their properties.” He continued, “After the extremely dynamic swing of the market since 2019, returning to a state of normalcy is clearly a challenge.”
