Active inventory was up at a slower pace, with for-sale homes up just 39% above one year ago. The number of homes for sale continues to climb, but hesitant seller participation is limiting the pace of growth. As a result, a greater share of current for-sale inventory is new construction.
New listings–a measure of sellers putting homes up for sale–were down again this week, by 21% from one year ago. The number of newly listed homes has been lower than the same time the previous year for the past 42 weeks.
