Low Housing Inventory 2021

Low Housing Inventory 2021

 
Prices are up sharply as housing inventory continues to plateau, leaving 40% fewer homes on the market compared to last year, according to a report prepared by Black Knight. Instead of making up for the shortfall, new listings have slumped further in 2021.
 
Instead of making up for the shortfall, new listings have slumped further in 2021. Year-over-year, new listing volumes were down 16% in January and 21% in February amounting to a 125,000 deficit in inventory compared to the same time in 2020.
 
“Any hopes of 2021 bringing an influx of homes to the market and lessening pressure on prices appear to be dashed for now,” said Ben Graboske, Black Knight’s data and analytics president.
 
Buyers who were fortunate enough to snag an available single-family home new listings are down 46% from a year ago paid a premium. In February, the median single-family sales price rose nearly 16% from last year.
 
Home prices in most big cities also increased due to low inventory. In nearly three-quarters of the 100 largest U.S. markets, annual home prices grew more than 10%. Overall, home prices grew 11.6% year-over-year in January, the most growth in a single year since 2005.
