National new home sales commentary for June, 2016

Inventory Irritant

While existing home sales in June were at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 5.57 million, their highest level since 2/07, sales remain 22% off the peak of mid-2005. A key reason; a low inventory that essentially hasn’t budged since late 2011. And why might that be? A rise in the number of renter-occupied single-family homes (which aren’t for sale) from 10.5 million in 2000 to 17.5 million!
