Home Sales & Inventory Are Springing Back

The housing market has some spring in its step, and relief

from price growth might be on the horizon.

Market Perspective: Fast Facts About the Housing Market
February existing home sales jumped 9.5% Month over Month. The largest monthly increase in a year. The market is gaining much-needed housing inventory. Supply of existing homes for sale is up 5.9% Month over Month. Single-family housing starts are up 11.6% month over month, and single-family housing completions are up 20.2% Month over Month.
Affordability remains a challenge, but 2024 may bring some relief. 550 US cities, a record high, have a typical home value of $1 million or more. Highest concentration in California and NYC metro. High price tags pose challenges to buyers, but represent equity wealth for many homeowners. Home-growth is expected to slow in the next year.
