Nationally by 6.2 percent according to the National
Association of Realtors . This is more than the previous peak observed in the third quarter of 2016 .

Existing home sales , including condos , fell 0.9 percent in numbers sold to 5.57 million in the second quarter , according to the report . Existing homes available for sale were down 7.1 percent-year – over – year to 1.96 million at the end of the quarter , with an average supply of 4.6 months .
Household incomes may be rising and giving consumers assurance that now is a good time to buy , but these severe inventory shortages will likely continue to be a drag on sales potential the second half of the year according to Lawrence Yun , chief economist at NAR .
If you are thinking of selling now may be the time . Inventory is short and usually we see an upsurge in buyers from August for the September – November market .
Now may be the time to call a Realtor to find the net worth of your home and get it ready to sell at top dollar .
