NAR released a summary of existing-home sales data showing that housing market activity this April fell 2.5 percent from last month and dropped 1.4 percent from last year. April’s existing home sales reached 5.46 million seasonally adjusted annual rate.
The national median existing-home price for all housing types was $257,900 in April, up 5.3 percent from a year ago. This marks the 74th consecutive month of year-over-year gains.
Regionally, all four regions showed growth in prices from a year ago, with the West leading all regions with an incline of 6.2 percent. The Midwest had a gain of 4.6 percent followed by the South with a gain of 3.9 percent. The Northeast had the smallest gain of 2.8 percent from April 2017.
April’s inventory figures are up 9.8 percent from last month to 1.67 million homes for sale. However, compared with April of 2017, fewer homes are available, with inventory down 6.2 percent, marking 35 months of year-over-year declines. It will take 4.0 months to move the current level of inventory at the current sales pace. Transactions are moving faster and it takes approximately 26 days for a home to go from listing to a contract in the current housing market, down from 39 days a year ago.
From March, three of the four regions experienced declines in sales. The Northeast had the biggest decline of 4.4 percent followed by the West with a drop of 3.3 percent. The South fell 2.9 percent. The Midwest region was flat.

My husband and I had had our house on the market for almost one year when we met Chris. He assessed our situation, was honest, fair and very direct regarding expectations. He presented marketing information to support his suggestions. He expressed how he would market our house. He did not disappoint us. He communicated well and was proactive in all situations. We had more showings after we listed with him and quickly had an offer on our house. We are happy to recommend him for your real estate needs. We wish him the best of luck and appreciate his guidance.Nancy Prince
