Quick question for you Marg. I’m an avid reader of your barometer postings (thanks so much!). One of the things I try to keep a pulse on is the listings to sales ratio (or the number of months of inventory). I noticed that each and every week the number of new listings consistently outpaces the number of sales. Is this a reflection of a recent build in inventory levels or is it perhaps caused by the new listings data including renewals of current listings, or other forms of “double counting” of the same properties?
Hi Keith and thanks for reading the blog. The listing inventory is increasing which is the main reason but you are current that it also includes relists of expired listings. Like most stats, they give a general snapshot but for accuracy on a specific property, we are able of course to drill down to separate things more specifically.
