The pace at which homes sell in the U.S. tends to ebb and flow over the calendar year, with homes selling fastest in the summer and slowest in the winter. But things are more muted in 2023 as high home prices and mortgage interest rates spook potential buyers. In June, the median number of days a home spent on the market was 29, 11 days longer than the year before.

Slowing home sales can indicate a given market is more buyer-friendly. It can also signal a mismatch between prospective homebuyers' purchasing power and market conditions.

Stacker compiled a list of metros where homes are taking the longest to sell, using data from Redfin. Metros are ranked by the most days listed for sale for June, with the metros with the most home sales ranked higher in cases of ties. Metros with over 300 home sales were included.
