Lack of Inventory Continues to be Buyers' Biggest Hurdle in June


SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With interest rates at all-time lows and buyers returning to the market armed with post-quarantine housing wishlists, sellers appear to be the missing link to a strong summer housing market. Realtor.com®'s June Monthly Housing Trends report issued today showed the nation's housing inventory decline accelerated since May as the number of new listings hitting the market continue to range between 17 to 21 percent lower than last year.

Nationally, housing inventory was down 27.4 percent year-over-year in June, which translates into 363,000 fewer homes listed for sale. The volume of newly listed properties was down 19.3 percent over last year -- much improved over the 44.1 percent and 29.4 percent year-over-year declines posted in April and May, respectively. However, unlike the April and May periods where new listings improved on a weekly basis, the rate of decline of new listings remained fairly steady over the six-week period ending June 27, with each week posting year-over-year declines between 17 to 23 percent.

"Our June data reinforces that buyers are out in force and serious about finding a home. Although the new listings trend has improved, inventory continues to decline, indicating that what is coming onto the market is selling," said realtor.com® Chief Economist Danielle Hale. "The housing market has certainly demonstrated its resilience during the COVID pandemic, but conditions vary market by market. In particular, the nation's largest metros are seeing a better new listings trend and smaller increase in the time it takes for a home to sell, which could signal they may lead the recovery."

The 50 largest metros metrics outpace the rest of the country
Despite seeing inventory decline from May, the nation's 50 largest metros performed better than the rest of the country in June.

At the same time, 47 of the nation's 50 largest housing markets saw greater inventory declines than last month even though most of these markets saw an improvement in the yearly decline of newly listed properties, an indication that homes are coming onto the market and selling. Of the largest 50 metros, 46 saw year-over-year gains in median listing prices in June, up from 35 in May.

Days on market, listing price growth vary from market-to-market
Nationally, the typical home spent 72 days on the market in June, 15 days more than a year ago. However, several markets did see days on market decrease in June, including Rochester, N.Y. (-4 days); Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford, Conn (-3 days); and.Boston-Cambridge-Newton, Mass.-N.H. (-3 days). In contrast, markets with the largest increases in time spent on market included Pittsburgh (+30 days); New York-Newark-Jersey City, N.Y.-N.J.-Pa. (+21 days); and Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach, Fla. (+21 days).

Although Pittsburgh made the list for the largest increase in days on market, it also saw the largest year-over-year increase in median listing price growth,up 23.8 percent year-over-year. The steepest price declines, which were all smaller than 3 percent, were seen in Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach, Fla. (-2.3 percent); Jacksonville, Fla., (-0.8 percent); and Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, Texas (-0.7 percent).
