Taos Real Estate Market Report for 2023

In a nutshell, the market is down.  Covid is over.  The Taos real estate market has become more of a norm when it comes to historic activity and units sold.

The big difference is the average sales price of single family home has climbed from $393,315 in 2019 to $577,452 for 2023.  The prices are remaining high due to less inventory and the fluctuation in interest rates.  Days on market are increasing as well as the absorption rates.  Units sold in 2019 was 240, in 2023, it was 233.  Looking at charts, the activity has slowed -44% from its height in 2022 of 366.  

The luxury market alone has taken a hit with an -80% decrease in sales between $1M and $1.5M.  The bell curve of price ranges remains the same with the most sales in the $401,000 - $500,000 range.  

Condominium sales decreased in sales greatly with 56 sales primarily in the Town of Taos and Taos Ski Valley.  The average sales price of $473,855 has been driven up by Ski Valley sales averaging $685,647.  

Building sites (<5 acres), also decreased in unit sales with the average sales price remaining over $100,000 for the past 3 years.

Commercial units reported in the MLS drastically decreased from 18 sales in 2002 to a mere 6 in 2023.  (Many commercial sales are transacted out of the MLS system.)

Total Market figures tell the story:  Units down by -37% and Sales Volume down by -45%.  We may be looking at 2019 as our benchmark of what may be our normal norm.
