Buyer Demand Continues to Outpace the Supply of Homes For Sale
The National Association of REALTORS' (NAR) Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun recently commented on the inventory shortage:
"With demand holding firm and homes selling even faster than a year ago, the notable increase in closings in recent months took a dent out of what was available for sale. Realtors are acknowledging, with increasing frequency lately, that buyers continue to be frustrated by the tense competition and lack of affordable homes for sale in their market."
The latest Existing Home Sales Report shows that there is currently a 4.6-month supply of homes for sale. This remains lower than the 6-month supply necessary for a normal market and 5.8% lower than June 2015. The chart below details the year-over-year inventory shortages experienced over the last 12 months: Anything less than a six-month supply is considered a "Seller's Market".
