Listing price growth has fallen flat or dropped from 2017 levels in six of the nation’s 100 largest housing markets, reports MarketWatch reporter Jacob Passy. In another four markets, the median listing price has risen by less than 1% year over year, according to data from Trulia.

Housing markets where median listing prices have not risen:

Metro AreaMedian Listing Price1-year change in median listing price
San Antonio, Texas$269,499-5.4%
Austin, Texas$336,995-3.4%
Honolulu, Hawaii$630,000-1.4%
Camden, N.J.$174,9000%
Milwaukee, Wis.$229,9000%
Sacramento, Calif.$429,0000%
Houston, Texas$299,5200.4%
Dallas-Ft. Worth$356,9990.5%
Sarasota, Fla.$332,2450.7%
Denver, Colo.$453,9900.9%

For some of the markets where median listing prices decreased or stagnated, such as Honolulu or Sarasota, Fla., this change appears to be indicative of stabilization after a long bull run in these local housing markets, Trulia noted. The median listing price has risen 21% in Sarasota and nearly 18% in Honolulu since March 2015.

That’s roughly in line with the growth in listing prices that has occurred at the national level. The national median list price now rests at $273,663, which is roughly 20% higher than in March 2015. Over that time, the pace at which home list prices have increased has risen nationally. Between 2015 and 2016 the national median listing price only rose 4.8%, but over the last year it increased by 7.4%. And housing analysts have grown increasingly concerned with how sustainable this boom is.
