Today, in the Calculated Risk Real Estate Newsletter: 3rd Look at Local Housing Markets in December
A brief excerpt:
Closed sales in December were mostly for contracts signed in October and November. Since 30-year fixed mortgage rates were over 7% for most of October (no points) and averaged 6.8% in November (Freddie PMMS with points) closed sales were probably impacted significantly in December.

Inventory in these markets were down 30% YoY in January 2022 and are now up 76% YoY! So, this is a significant change from early in 2022, and about the same YoY inventory increase as in November (up 72% YoY).
