Ada county market reports, March 2023



In March, the median sales price of homes that sold in Ada County was $483,450 — down 16.0% compared to March 2022, and the fifth consecutive month of annual decline in price. March 2023 showed a return to month-over-month decreases (a slant of approximately $8,600), unlike February where we saw a slight increase from the preceding month.

With 742 total sales for the county, closings were 9.3% lower than the same month last year. March marks the second month in a row that year-over-year declines were limited to single digits, pointing to an uptick in overall market activity.


This is echoed by a month-over-month decrease in Days on Market — homes spent an average of six more days on the market in February than they did in March 2023, where they spent a total of 72 days before going under contract.


Inventory continues to accumulate, leading to a better position for Months’ Supply of Inventory (MSI) — a metric for determining how many months the current inventory would take to run dry without having any new listings. There were 1,134 single-family homes available in March 2023, split into 613 existing homes and 521 new construction homes.


We are still working toward a balanced market — one that does not favor buyers or sellers. Inventory growth and longer days on market grant buyers options and time, an opportunity they have not had in recent years. March 2023 shows an MSI of 1.6 for all single-family homes, MSI of 1.3 for existing homes, and MSI of 2.3 for new construction. A balanced market is achieved by having an MSI of 4-6 months, meaning we are still shy of being considered “balanced.”


As we head toward the Spring market, demand and movement will tick up. However, buyers still have negotiation power. Work closely with a real estate professional to ensure your pricing and marketing strategies are up to date with market shifts due to seasonality, rates, and other factors. A REALTOR® can prepare you with options as a buyer, such as down payment assistance programs, or as a seller with various online and in-person marketing techniques.
