Inventory of unsold homes hits 15 year high! What's going on in your neck of the woods?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty of Newport

NAR reported today that the inventory of single-family unsold homes is up to a 9.2 month supply.  I'm sure you'll all agree that the "mortgage meltdown" certainly isn't helping matters.  The last time we saw inventory this high was back in October of 1991.  For all types of properties (single family, condos, etc) the average is up to a 9.6 month supply but NAR has only been tracking those stats since its last high in '99.

WE have a rather stagnant market.  Sellers seem to be sitting it out.

John,

We're right there in our area also. Listings all over the place. No sold signs. I think it would behoove agents to 'thin out' the number of signs in some areas. I still believe that 'Consumer Confidence' and employment uncertainties outweigh the mortgage meltdown factor. Thanks,   Fran
