The Ballantyne housing market continued to cool in the month of November with lower closed and pending sales, higher days on market, lower list to sale price ratio, and more inventory.

BALLANTYNE MONTHS SUPPLY OF HOMES STILL LOW & NEW LISTINGS DOWN IN NOVEMBER 2022
Ballantyne’s months supply of homes at 1.1 months keeps it a seller’s market and we would need several more months of inventory to consider Ballantyne a balanced market, much less a buyer’s market. The months supply of homes increased from 0.6 months in November 2021 and was down by 0.2 months compared with October 2022.
