For the month of December 2023, OneKey MLS reported a regional closed median sale price of $625,000, a 9.60% increase from $570,000, the closed median sale price reported in the month of December 2022.

Closed sales transactions decreased 15.00% in December 2023 in a year-over-year comparison from 3,270 in December 2022 to 4,406 in December 2023. Month-over-month, closed sales transactions reportedly decreased 4.20% from 3,909 in November 2023.

Statistical trends month-over-month and year-over-year for December 2023 somewhat mirror the 2023 Annual Regional reports for the New York regional coverage area, with the exception that year-over-year pending sales transactions for the month of December 2023 increased. This may be an indication that the New York regional area may be in line with the experts’ expectation of increasing national transactional activity in 2024.

Of national home sales in December 2023, NAR Chief Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun said, “The latest month’s sales look to be the bottom before inevitably turning higher in the new year. Mortgage rates are meaningfully lower compared to just two months ago, and more inventory is expected to appear on the market in the upcoming months.”[1] For further detailed statistical information about residential, condo, and co-op sales transactions, please visit
