Inventory pressures have led to faster sales in some parts of the country as high buyer demand is met with limited choices of homes for sale.
Nationwide, total housing inventories dropped to 2.02 million existing homes available for sale by the end of October, 4.3 percent lower than a year ago, NAR reports. Unsold inventory is now at a 4.3-month supply at the current sales pace.
But there is hope that the inventory picture will improve in the coming months.
“The ramp-up in housing starts in October is a hopeful sign that overall supply can steadily increase enough to provide more choices for buyers and also moderate price growth,” says Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. “A prolonged continuation of the robust single-family starts pace seen last month (869,000) would go a long way in giving homeowners much-needed assurance that they can list their home for sale and find a new home to buy within a reasonable time frame.”

"After going through a failed sale, a business partner introduced me to Scottie. He came over and did a walkthrough and presented me with statistical data on my house and neighborhood. Scottie had complete confidence that my would sell in no time. He was right! I was very impressed with the amount of traffic my house received, not to mention the contract. Scottie and his team were A1 and professional! After completing some "to-do" items for him and the buyers, I signed the paperwork and closed the sell of the house to the new home owners today! Smoothest process ever!"
