Home prices surge as new year begins

Consumers who resolved to buy a home in 2022 may have been dreaming of a reprieve from ever-climbing home prices, but so far, those dreams aren’t coming true. A new report from Redfin real estate brokerage found that median home sales prices reached a record high during the week ending Jan. 9.

The median sales price rose 16% for the week ending Jan. 9 compared with the same week in 2021 to $365,000 nationwide. Price increases are following the pattern of 2021 and late 2020, with supply woefully inadequate compared with demand.

“The stage is now set for the most competitive January housing market in recorded history,” Redfin’s chief economist Daryl Fairweather said in a statement. “Buyers are pouring into the market to claim a home before mortgage rates rise further as new listings slow to a trickle. The conditions are becoming increasingly challenging for first-time homebuyers, who will have

Bottoms Up! Can You Make This Beautiful Brick Building Into a Craft Brew Paradise?

The Mississippi River town of Ste. Genevieve, MO, might be the ideal spot for a buyer in search of a refreshing idea.

This mixed-use structure on the market for $599,900 has the potential to become a craft brew paradise.

“[The building] was built in the late 1800s as a brewery, so it still has a lot of that old architecture, like high ceilings, big steel beams, and exposed brick, and you can actually still see some of the pieces of the building that they used for brewing,” says the listing agent, Zachary Naeger with RE Source. “There’s a concrete trough where they used to divert water, and a stone cellar with arched ceilings where they used to store wine and beer.”

Right now, half of the building awaits a suds-fueled renaissance, and the other half is a recently converted residence that truly shines.

$6.5M Massachusetts Mansion Was Inspired By a Rare Luxury Car

Few homeowners have based their home’s design on a luxury car.

But the owners of a distinctive residence in Swampscott, MA, created their $6.5 million waterfront home to replicate the sleek curves of the 1948 Delahaye 135M—a rare French automobile.

“There really is no other property like this,” says the listing broker, Matt Dolan of Sagan Harborside Sotheby’s International Realty. “It’s like an art deco Batmobile with swoopy fenders. That’s the spirit that comes to the house. In keeping with that, there are no straight walls in the house.”

Located about a half-hour north of Boston, at the end of a private, gated lane, this stylish five-bedroom beachfront home was built in 1995 on a 1.43-acre lot.

“When you think of a Massachusetts house, you tend to think of a New England-style Colonial,” says Dolan.

This means that this residence with what the agent calls “architecturally crisp lines” is a

For $15M, a Majestic Montana Property Offers Views for Miles

A humongous log home in Montana offers plenty of seclusion, but sits just close enough to everything the Big Sky area has to offer.

“It’s on 160 acres in a conservation easement, and it’s surrounded by 4,000 acres of conservation easement land. Beyond that is National Forest and wilderness area,” explains the listing agent, Michelle Horning of The Big Sky Real Estate Co. “So it’s 160 acres—but it kind of feels like you’re on thousands of acres.”

Yet the rustic residence is only about 15 minutes from Big Sky Resort and Moonlight Basin, a rarity according to the agent.

“Most of the time when you find these large tracts of land, you have to drive for a long time to get to them, and there are not many services nearby, so this is really special,” she says.

On the market for $15 million, the 7,218-square-foot spread has had only one

HGTV’s ‘Rock the Block’ Season 1 Winner Home Hits the Market for $1,149,000

“Rock the Block” is one of HGTV’s most ambitious shows. Four teams of the network’s top design stars face off against one another. The experts attempt to add value to identical properties in the same metro area, with only four weeks to complete their projects.

And with design gurus plying their trade on relatively blank canvases, the winning home is destined to be special. Which brings us to this beautiful four-bedroom home in Canyon Country, CA.

Listed for $1,149,000 in early January, it was the winner of the show’s first season and was designed by popular HGTV personality Jasmine Roth. A deal for the home is in the offing after less than two weeks on the market.

Roth competed against HGTV’s Leanne Ford of “Restored by the Fords,” Mina Starsiak Hawk of “Good Bones,” and Alison Victoria of “Windy City Rehab.” Each expert was assigned an identical three-bedroom, three-bathroom
