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:

"We contacted Ryan Lowry because we had another realtor who was not really doing anything for us. After 3 months we decided to go with another realtor. So we contacted Ryan Lowry and he came over to talk to us. Not only did he talk, but he did an beautiful video and they did some professional pictures which we were very proud of and what do you know, they sold our house in less than 10 days and we couldn't be happier. I thought that the marketing was very professional. I had several friends of mine that we're curious and went on some websites and said they were very impressed with the layout of the house and how the video was done. Everything, to me, was very very professional and like I said, they did exactly what they said that they would do, when they said they would do it. Since we switched over from the realtor that we had hired to Ryan Lowry, we had many showings and we were really happy with all of the results because it was done so fast and so professional. We would recommend Ryan Lowry to anyone.
