“The unprecedented transaction peak of 2020-2022 is now firmly in the rearview mirror with only significantly higher property valuations in its wake. In 2023, the market dipped below 300 annual transactions, a lower limit that hasn’t been breached since 2009 when there were 230 transactions. Yet the total dollar volume for this relatively limited number of sales was $1.15 billion, nearly triple the dollar volume from 2009 and solidly above what was once considered a lofty ceiling.
Except for the third quarter, which was flat to 3Q2022, every other quarter saw approximately 40 percent less in both dollar and transaction volume from one year earlier. Full-year 2023 figures were less than 50 percent of the peak transaction totals from 2021. Despite this, nearly every market metric pointed to a market that is still on very solid footing. Years of unflagging demand and extremely limited supply resulted in soaring property values and, so far, they haven’t materially changed. However, our review of appreciation rates suggests the rate of increase may have slowed significantly in 2023…” Jen Shalley Allen
