These Are The Most Valuable Housing Markets In America

• https://www.zerohedge.com, by Tyler Durden

Despite a slowdown in home sales, the total value of homes increased $2.4 trillion last year as low inventory levels pushed up prices.

Affordable metropolitan areas saw steady price growth, while expensive metros experienced slower price appreciation.

This graphic, via Visual Capitalist's Dorothy Neufeld, shows America's most valuable housing markets, using data from Redfin.

Top U.S. Residential Real Estate Markets

To calculate the largest U.S. housing markets, Redfin analyzed 90 million properties covering single-family homes, townhouses, condos, and two-to four-unit multifamily properties.

Below, we show the most valuable residential markets as of December 2023:

With a housing market worth $2.4 trillion, New York, NY tops the list.

Unlike the majority of large U.S. cities, the aggregate value of homes declined as buyers became increasingly priced out of the market. At the same time, homeowners hesitated to sell in order to lock in low mortgage rates. In fact, more than 80% of mortgage holders in New York City have interest rates that are 5% or lower.
