Inventory shrank by almost seven percent compared to last year and is down to 36,880 units. Prices moved higher as median sales price was up five percent to $182,100. Homes are selling quickly with most on the market for only 99 days. Month’s supply of inventory was down twelve percent to six months, indicating that demand increased relative to supply.
