Nearly one-third of homes listed in the US registered a price cut in October. The share of discounted homes, at 31.3 percent, is the highest since Redfin started tracking this metric in 2010. In spite of the large share of discounted homes, the median price for a US home increased 4.5 percent year over year to $297,200. Knoxville, Tennessee, posted the highest price growth in the country at 16 percent. Read the report here.
