Nationwide, 5,897 homes sold for at least $100,000 over asking price at the beginning of this year, up from 2,241 during the same period last year, according to a new report from Redfin (, the technology-powered real estate brokerage.

This is according to a Redfin analysis of sale prices versus list prices in the 50 most populous U.S. metros from Jan. 1, 2022 through Feb. 15, 2022, compared with the same period last year.

Homebuyers are paying up in an effort to beat other bidders competing for the few homes on the market. January was the most competitive month on record, with 70% of home offers written by Redfin agents facing bidding wars (adjusted for seasonality).
