According to the NAR, sales of existing homes rose 14.5% month-over-month in February, breaking a 12-month streak of declines. This is the largest increase since July 2020.

Here are the main takeaways:

  • The median existing home price fell to $363,000, down 0.2% year over year. That drop ended a 131-month streak of consecutive YoY increases, the longest streak on record.
  • Properties are spending an average of 34 days on market
  • Sales could have been higher, but inventory still remains a problem. Data shows only 980,000 homes for sale, which is about a two-to-three month supply of homes.
