This is where homes are selling the slowest right now

The pace at which homes sell in the U.S. tends to ebb and flow over the calendar year with homes selling the fastest in the summer months and slowest in the winter. Year over year, however, the U.S. real estate market has seen homes typically selling quicker and quicker. In November, the median number of days a home spent on the market was 37, about two weeks slower compared to the year before.

Slowing home sales can be a sign that a given market is more buyer-friendly. It can also signal a mismatch between prospective homebuyers' purchasing power and market conditions.

Stacker compiled a list of metros where homes are selling the slowest using data from Redfin. Metros are ranked by the most days listed for sale for the month of November with the metros with the most home sales being ranked higher in case of ties. Metros with over 300 home sales in November were included.
