This is where homes are selling the slowest in America right now

The pace at which houses sell in the U.S. tends to ebb and flow seasonally, with homes selling fastest in the summer months and slowest in the winter. Year over year, however, the U.S. real estate market has seen homes typically flying off the market quicker and quicker, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic pushed people out of city rentals and into the suburbs as first-time buyers.

But not every part of the U.S. is still seeing a real estate boom. Stacker compiled a list of metros where homes are selling the slowest using June 2022 data from Redfin. Stacker looked at metros with over 300 home sales in June and ranked them by the most days listed for sale for the month. Metros with the most home sales were ranked higher in the case of ties.

Slowing home sales can be a sign that any given market is more buyer-friendly, but it can also signal a mismatch between prospective homebuyers' purchasing power and market conditions. Read on to see the 50 metros in the U.S. where homes are selling the slowest.
