Kansas Housing Market Stats – January 2023

“Sales activity last month was the lowest January figure we’ve seen since 2015,” said KAR president Thomas Howe with McGrew Real Estate in Lawrence. “At that time, however, there were nearly two-and-a-half times as many homes available for sale. As a result, it remains a sellers’ market across most of the state.”
