These Are The 10 Cities Seeing The Steepest Home-Price Declines

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

Double-digit monthly price growth for the US housing market could soon slow as skyrocketing mortgage rates trigger an affordability crisis that has caused fewer and fewer buyers to bid on homes in some metropolitan areas. 

Realtor.com provided new data revealing the top ten metro areas that recorded the steepest price drops in March. Those cities include Toledo, Ohio; Rochester, New York; Detroit, Michigan; Pittsburg, Pennsylvania; and Springfield, Massachusetts. 

Here's a complete list of where home prices fell the most.

1. Toledo, OH

  • Median listing price: $115,000

  • Median listing price change: -18.7%

2. Rochester, NY

  • Median listing price: $149,900

  • Median listing price change: -17.0%

3. Detroit, MI

  • Median listing price: $75,000

  • Median listing price change: -15.4%

4. Pittsburgh, PA

  • Median listing price: $230,000

  • Median listing price change: -13.7%

5. Springfield, MA

  • Median listing price: $239,900

  • Median listing price change: -5.8%

6. Tulsa, OK

  • Median listing price: $220,000

  • Median listing price change: -5.0%

7. Los Angeles

  • Median listing price: $985,000

  • Median listing price change: -5.0%

8. Memphis, TN

  • Median listing price: $173,500

  • Median listing price change: -4.6%

9. Chicago

  • Median listing price: $399,000

  • Median listing price change: -3.7%

10. Richmond, VA

  • Median listing price: $310,000

  • Median listing price change: -3.4%

Since the beginning of the year, 30 Year fixed mortgage rate has jumped a staggering 214 bps, the highest in over a decade, with Bankrate data showing mortgage rates are above 5.40%. 

Higher rates and elevated prices have caused the housing affordability index to crash to record lows. 

Since housing affordability tends to lead the trajectory of existing home sales by about half a year, we suspect the housing market will continue to cool through the second half of the year.
