Welcome to the October update for the Oklahoma City real estate market. Every day right now folks are asking me what kind of shift is in the market - is there a slowdown? So, we're going to compare a lot of the numbers for today to June of this year. This means we're comparing now to just three months back before some of the rate increases had effect on the market. You can see on the video, the the most recent rate increases from the FED. Three quarters of a point at a time - that's very aggressive, historically, for the way they influence market rates. The the result of this on mortgage rates is that right now we have clients that are locking at seven to seven and a quarter percent on their mortgage loan - compared to just three months ago when the same type of customer would have been locking at five and a half, maybe even lower. So it has changed the interest rate in an actual purchase and that's sure to have some impact on the market. Let's take a look at the numbers! In these numbers you're going to see some shift in the market but not "crazy", not a lot of movement just some incremental changes on each of these indicators.
First, let's look at inventory. Right now we're at a nine week supply in the Oklahoma City Market. Now, if you compare that to June of this year - we had a six week supply at that time. I've said it before but Oklahoma City usually is in oversupply. There's so much land around us. I mean, you go five minutes in any direction and there's more land that could be developed and built on. Normally, our market exists in oversupply. What we've seen the last two years as the first time this has really ever happened in Oklahoma so a nine week Supply or just over two months is not that drastic.
Now let's look at Days on Market - probably one of the best indicators of market temperature. Right now, the days on market is averaging at 22, and the median is nine. So the the good houses in the better locations with the better finishes - those are going (under contract) in the first week to nine days - something in that time frame. The average is at 22. this is not a drastic increase, but it is up from June of this year when the average was 14 and the median days on market was just four.
Okay, now let's look at list-to-sale-price ratio. As of the end of September, the list-to-sale-price ratio was 99%. Contrast that to June of this year when the list of sale price ratio was 102%. So you can see a shift there. Let me give you a little better perspective on this. If you look at numbers pre-pandemic, I mean for years and years, a normal list-to-sale-price ratio in our area was 98%. In other words, I used to tell buyers and sellers at that time a 2% negotiating margin is pretty normal. What we just came out of the last two years - we saw more sales that were over list price than we've probably ever seen in the Oklahoma City Market. That's settling now - the average now is at 99%.
Finally, let's look at the average sale price across Oklahoma City Metro. At the end of September 30th the average sale price was $285,000. Year over year, that compares to last September at $253,000.
