The housing market is in the midst of a major shift, and the Door County market is no exception. Although our unique housing market is typically more stable than the rest of the country, it tends to follow the national trend in a fashion similar to the arrival of summer: just a bit delayed.

Home buyers and sellers may be experiencing a slight panic, with echos of the 2008 market crash causing additional concern. While these fears are not unfounded, changes to the structuring of mortgages, higher interest rates, and continued low inventory make this market quite different than the situation back then.

A market “correction” is very different than a crash. Although the market is slowing, analysts say that there is no expectation of a major crash like we experienced over a decade ago.

This market is complicated to be sure, but the news is not all bad – for buyers or sellers. Opportunities abound, particularly in Door County, and with the right partner in your corner, you can achieve your real estate goals even in the face of a shifting market.

If you’re thinking of selling, call one of our experts so we can help you navigate the shifting Door County real estate market.

trends for late summer 2022

Lower Home Sales

Existing home sales slid in recent months, with lower inventory putting upward pressure on home prices. 

Affordability Decreasing

Flat income rates, rising home prices, and higher mortgage rates are making it more difficult to buy a home.

Inventory Higher in County

Smaller communities like Door County saw a slight increase in inventory over the last year, an exception to the rule over much of the state.
