Home price market

In a case of reality-calling, more home sellers are reducing their prices in 2016 from their original listing price, especially in Texas, according to a report from online listing service Trulia.

Though home prices are rising, more reductions are being made from the original listing price. Reductions increased 0.52 percentage points over the past 12 months to 10.66% in September.

This could mean there is a softening in the market as buyers hit their ceiling of what they’re willing to pay. On the other hand, it could be a sign that sellers are over-pricing their homes. Or perhaps, it might be a little of both?

Whatever the reason, reductions increased in 70 out of the largest 100 metropolitan areas, especially in Texas. In fact, out of the top 10 metros, four are in the Lone Star State.

Here are the top 10 metros with the most increase in price reductions over the past year:
