Homebuyer Bidding-War Rate Drops to Lowest Level Since January

Competition is easing as homebuyers grow tired of sky-high asking prices and the housing market enters its typical seasonal slowdown.

In August, 58.8% of home offers written by Redfin agents faced competition—a record low for 2021. That’s down from a revised rate of 62.1% in July and a peak of 74.3% in April. It’s also slightly lower than the August 2020 bidding-war rate of 59.4%.
