RE/MAX Publishes April 2024 Housing Report


RE/MAX has published its latest monthly report tracking updates to the national housing market (based on survey results of 50 metro areas). The report goes up to April 2024, which a press release noted is often the beginning of a summer pick-up for home sales. RE/MAX’s findings indicate this April won’t be any different.

RE/MAX President Amy Lessinger said:

“We’ve started the busy home-buying season on a very good note. Gains in home sales, new listings and the number of homes for sale are all signs of a more active, rebalancing market. This has happened without a significant drop in interest rates – suggesting that buyers and sellers may be less apt to delay their plans this year. More sellers have come into the market – and they’re finding buyers who are ready to go.”

Key details:

  • Sales increased in April 2024 by 11.2% month-over-month and by 9% year-over-year from April 2023. 
  • Aprils 2022 and 2023 both saw sales decline year-over-year, making the 2024 increase all the more eye-catching. 
  • Median sale price increased 2.9% month-over-month to $437,000—homebuyers recorded new willingness to pay 100% of the listing price, compared to 99% in March and 2023.
    • Manchester, New Hampshire had the highest increase in median sales price, with a recorded $475,000 in April 2024 compared to $410,000 in April 2023 (a 15.9% increase). 
  • New listings increased 6.3% since March 2024 and 18.2% since April 2023—the number of homes for sales is now 28.8% higher than the previous year.
    • Of the metro areas surveyed: Bozeman, Montana experienced the highest increase in new listings (216 to 300, or 38.9%). 
    • Larger markets such as Miami (31.2%) and Atlanta (30.9%) experienced notable increases in their amount of new listings as well.
  • April 2024 recorded the highest increase in inventory in the last 13 months. Current supply of inventory is 1.7 months’ worth.
