This is for all the buyers wondering "where is the inventory"? The inventory is here, this graph shows that buyer interest is extremely high and gobbling up all that new inventory coming online!
This is also for people saying "shadow inventory exists"! Well I believe it exists but it also exists in short sales which has tripled to quadrupled it's formerly stagnant close ratio since late spring.
These are Listing/Under Contract & Pending/Sold Trends from December 2007-February 2010.
Even since these numbers were pulled mid February we are looking at 9300 active listings now! Major inventory reductions in our already inventory squeezed market are upon us!
I do expect a frenzy of pendings & closes as the tax credits for first time buyers comes to a contracted halt at the end of April. Pendings have also begun their traditional "spring" rise. Let the closings begin!
