At My State MLS, we are forecasting that prices will continue to rise in 2022 but at a more moderate pace than 2021. Going into 2022, demand isn't as high and supply is going to be a bit better than 2021.

Mortgage rates will grow upwards but still be a reasonable value for homebuyers. Inventory of available properties will remain low, but homebuilders are ramping up and many sellers are itching to sell at their new higher prices.


We expect rents to outpace home price growth because demand is still greater than supply. First-time homebuyers will continue to struggle because of higher prices and the supply problem. Bottomline, 2022 is still going to be a seller’s market, just not as frenetic as 2021.

Before we say goodbye to 2021, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you Happy Holidays and many successes in the New Year!

Best wishes,


Dawn at work VIS_4337 crop w_500.jpg

2022 Housing Market Research & Predictions from

R7-50221-HousingForecast V2 w_600.jpg

Americans will have a better chance to find a home in 2022, but will face a competitive seller’s market as first-time buyer demand outmatches the inventory recovery. Additionally, with listing prices, rents and mortgage rates all expected to climb while incomes rise, 2022 will present a mixed bag of housing affordability challenges and opportunities.

Here’s How Inflation Is Affecting Home Prices

What Buyers and Sellers Need To Know Right Now

Inflation .png

Inflation is a red-hot topic right now, and for good reason: In October, the annual inflation rate rose to an alarming 6.2%. That’s the highest it’s hit since November 1990, over 30 years ago, and a steep uptick from the manageable 2% that we’ve enjoyed for the past five years.

Translated to your daily life, this means Americans are shelling out more money for just about everything, from gas for your tank to heating bills to groceries and more. Our money simply doesn’t go as far as it used to.

So what’s the impact of inflation on housing? Not surprisingly, inflation is influencing the real estate market in a big way, too.

Deep Dive into Proposed NAR

MLS Changes

By Dawn Pfaff

Every year, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) converge on a major city. Other than the keynote address, the MLS policy meeting is usually standing-room only, because every year the MLS Policy Committee makes some new, earth-shattering, life-changing policy that ends up dividing the industry and the room. There are some key MLS changes being proposed this year.

This Hamptons Home Has Been in the Same Family for Over 100 Years - Now It’s for Sale

Screen Shot 2021-12-07 at 3.54.22 PM.png

A Hamptons home that has been in the same family for over a century is hitting the market for $18 million. The Amagansett home, which has 17 bedrooms and spans about 13,000 square feet, has been passed down for four generations, according to Lucy Mackall Sachs, 73, who inherited the property in 1996 with her five siblings.

The home sits on roughly 4 acres atop a hill. On the grounds, there is a tennis court, swimming pool and hot tub, Ms. Sachs said. There is also a three-bedroom guesthouse that used to be a garage.

The home is listed on East End LI - a listing service owned and managed by the

Use Open Listings to Get Leads, Advertise Yourself,

and Expand Your Business

Open Listing Video Poster Frame V2.png

Click above to watch Dawn Pfaff, president and founder of My State MLS explain how Open Listings work with My State MLS.

In real estate sales and rentals, an open listing is a property advertisement that doesn't have a contract to pay a commission between a real estate agent and the property owner.

With Open Listing Advertisements, you can post Open Listings that will show up on our public search. Your photo, name, and company will also be promoted on all of your listings with this upgrade.

Open Listings are covered by our Your Listing, Your Lead policy; when buyers request a showing, that lead will go right to you.

Open Listings Work

All over the country both rental and buying inventory is low. Finding an owner so you can list their property is tough without a big list of former clients.

Approach apartment and condo complexes and offer to list their properties for free. My State MLS allows open listings. Almost all local MLS's don't.
