Is The Housing Market Recovering?

Is The Housing Market Recovering?Housing Market

Realtor.com Real Estate Trend Data – April 2012

National Trends– As the 2012 spring home buying season comes into full swing key indicators continue to suggest the housing market may be at a turning point and headed towards a broad-based recovery. The total US for-sale inventory of single family homes, condos, townhomes and co-ops (SFH/CTHCOPS) now stands at 1.84 million units, down -18.85% in April 2012 compared to a year ago, and well below its peak of 3.10 million units observed in September 2007 when Realtor.com began tracking these data. The median age of the inventory fell by -11.57% on a year-over-year basis, from 95 days in April 2011 to 84 days in April 2012, while the median list price–$191,211—has remained essentially stable for more than a year.

Many Florida markets have cleared out much of their excess inventories and appear to be in recovery mode, while other hard-hit areas – Phoenix and California — show early signs of recovery. However, some Midwest and Northeast markets are losing ground as weak local economies take their toll. Lower inventories, combined with faster moving markets and relatively stable median listing prices are indicative of the kind of balanced housing market that has not been seen in many years.
