  • This month’s report displays the market statistics for North America AND Flagstaff month over month as well as the 13-month trend.
  • While there is little doubt that the current luxury market is facing challenges, we investigate the slight shift in some of the market’s variables that could be the key to market growth in the future.

  • For the first time in 2023, monthly sales outnumbered the previous year’s sales in both single-family and attached markets – was this because of increased inventory?
  • Additionally, buyers saw fixed mortgage rates fall slightly, sparking an increase in applications as well as speculation that rates may come down during 2024.
