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 Las Vegas short sales which has tripled to quadrupled it's formerly stagnant close ratio since late spring.

Contracted closings are stalled because of the large amount of Las Vegas short sales that are contracted. Inventory rise is directly related to the tax credit expiring.
