A typical Yates County home listed for $367,450 in June, down 9.3% from the previous month's $405,000, an analysis of data from Realtor.com shows.

The median list home price in June was down about 13.5% from June 2021. Yates County's median home was 1,640 square feet for a listed price of $201 per square foot.

The Yates County market was busy, with a median 25 days on market. A month earlier, homes had a median 15 days on market. The market added 28 new home listings in June, compared with the 20 added in June 2021. The market ended the month with some 41 listings of homes for sale.

The median home prices issued by Realtor.com may exclude much, or even most, of a market's homes. The price and volume represent only homes that are single-family homes, condominums or townhomes. They include existing homes, but exclude most new construction as well as pending and contingent sales.

The median home list price — the midway point of all the houses or units listed over a period of time — is used more often in this report instead of the average home list price because experts say the median offers a more accurate view of what's happening in a market. In finding the average price, all prices of homes listed are added and then divided by the number of homes sold. This measure can be skewed by one low or high price.
