May/June 2013 Market Pulse
Home sales have been hovering at the 4.9 million sales-pace mark since fall of last year and aren’t likely to move up much unless more inventory comes onto the market. As long as markets continue to see inventory shortages, home prices will continue to rise, not a healthy development if household income gains don’t keep up. All trend lines are from March 2012 to March 2013.
