This graph compares the home inventory to the median listing price from August 2017 to July 2018. Both home inventory and median listing price had dropped after August 2017, but home inventory began to increase again after January 2018 and reached 742,320 in July 2018, which is still about 5% lower than one year ago. The national median listing price reached $322,842 in July 2018, about 10.3% higher than last August. The data shows that the market was hot probably due to low interest rates and high demand.

A closer look at trends in inventory and listings in major metropolitan areas reveals that home inventory increased in more than half of the major metro areas. Median listing prices also rose in most major metropolitan area. This reflects home prices are continuing to rise at a fast pace nationwide.1
