Oklahoma Real Estate Market Trends & Analysis

The Oklahoma real estate market has demonstrated an increased propensity towards buyer stability. Whereas a great deal of markets across the country have seen exponential increases in home values price buyers out of the market, real estate in Oklahoma remains both attractive and affordable. Due largely, in part, do a diversified industry, Oklahoma hasn’t experienced the same extremes as the majority of the United States.

While prices have risen for approximately seven consecutive years, they did so at a rate that was slower than the national average. As a result, transaction volume is up, listings have increased, pending listings have been on the rise, and “days on market” are down. Contrary to many of its national counterparts, the Oklahoma real estate market has been able to navigate local inventory shortages and come out on the other end more balanced than others.
