Three Cents Worth:
Reading the Tea Leaves of Listing Inventory

This week I thought I’d try to compare the listing inventory trend in the first two months of any given year and see if there was a corresponding change in re-sale price per square foot adjusted for inflation. The thinking is that faster inventory growth means more weakness in price—pretty basic.

  1. It’ll be interesting to see if sellers that hid last year, a significant number, will choose to put their properties back on the market. On the one hand the market, still wounded but much better then last year, has to look like a safer bet. On the other, there is plenty of negative real estate/business news to give sellers pause. Maybe wait longer or don’t sell at all

    Extra inventory we don’t need but how much will it affect pricing? Depends on the numbers I suppose. I’m wondering that if we see more inventory at lower pricing could that actually spur some sales as buyers see opportunity and discounts?
