At last, buyers and sellers of high-end homes have reached a common ground.
CNBC reports that the sales prices of luxury homes is up 7.5 percent from a year ago, the first time luxury prices has outpaced the rest of the market since 2014. The main reason for this: Sellers have come down from their exorbitant initial prices. As an example, CNBC noted that a home in Brooklyn recently sold for $15 million, still a high price, but down 40 percent from what the seller originally wanted.
Per the NAR, the sales of homes priced above $1 million increased 19 percent year-over-year in June, and the number of listings at or above $1 million fell 9.4 percent in the same time period.
