Strong inventory growth continued to pick up, with homes for sale up 61% year-over-year.. Stocks of homes for sale rose, repeating last week’s rise, which was the lowest since December. Instead of new sellers driving this growth, longer time on the market increases the number of homes for sale. It should be noted that active listings at this time last year were at or close to long-term lows.

New listings – a measure of sellers listing homes for sale – are down again this week, down 18% from last year.. In 36 weeks, fewer homeowners put their homes up for sale than a year ago. The gap this week was smaller than last week, but the lack of new sellers is still holding back home sales.
