Watching current dwelling “on the market” stock could be very useful. For instance, the rise in stock in late 2005 helped me name the highest for housing.

And the lower in stock finally helped me accurately name the underside for home costs in early 2012, see: The Housing Backside is Right here.

And in 2015, it appeared the stock construct in a number of markets was ending, and that boosted value will increase.  

In 2020, with the pandemic, stock dropped to file lows, and costs actually elevated (file low mortgage charges and demographics have been components too).

I haven’t got a crystal ball, however watching stock helps perceive the housing market.

Click on on graph for bigger picture.

This graph under reveals current dwelling months-of-supply (from the NAR) vs. the seasonally adjusted month-to-month value change within the Case-Shiller Nationwide Index (each since January 1999 by way of February 2021).

There’s a clear relationship, and that is no shock (however attention-grabbing to graph).  If months-of-supply is excessive, costs decline. If months-of-supply is low, costs rise.

In February, months-of-supply was at 2.0 months, and the Case-Shiller Nationwide Index elevated 1.1% month-over-month.  The arrow factors to the February dot.

Within the current dwelling gross sales report launched final week, the NAR reported months-of-supply at 2.1 months in March. There’s a seasonal sample to stock, however that is simply above the file low of 1.9 months for December 2020 and January 2021 – and costs are rising sharply.
