Housing inventory ready to rise?

While housing inventory continued to decrease – down 0.2 percent in the last year – analysts say a turnaround may be coming with up to 8 percent increase in new listings, which would be the largest jump since 2013.

Larger cities are already seeing an in crease in listings with San Jose, Calif.; Seattle; Jacksonville, Fla.; San Diego; and San Francisco posting increases of 31 percent or more.

With inventory still low, houses are continuing to sell at a rapid pace with the average time on the market in the U.S. at 65 days. In the Bay Area, of course, houses sell at a much more rapid rate.
