Rents have also been on the rise, another factor that has put the entry-level market in strong demand.

The number of existing homes sold in 2016 was 5.4 million, which exceeded the 5.25 million sold in the previous year and is now the highest in a decade. Declining inventory and affordability are both going to be closely surveyed this year, as a continuation of those trends could negatively impact sales. For now, prices are still running higher and days on market are still lower, both indicative of healthy demand.

  • New Listings increased 12.8% to 1,025
  • Pending Sales increased 4.0% to 730
