Preliminary Existing Home Inventory June: Local Markets


by Calculated Risk on 7/14/2021 04:45:00 PM

I’m gathering existing home data for many local markets, and I’m watching inventory very closely this year.

The table below shows some preliminary data for June (more to come).

As I noted in Some thoughts on Housing Inventory

The key for housing in 2021 will be inventory. If inventory stays extremely low, there will be more housing starts and a larger increase in house prices. However, if inventory increases significantly, there will be fewer starts and less price appreciation.

Although inventory in these areas is down about 44% year-over-year, inventory is up 13% month-to-month. Seasonally we’d usually expect an increase in inventory from May to June – so this increase is probably seasonal (as opposed to a shift in the market).

It does appear inventory bottomed seasonally in March.
