Shadow Inventory

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Hearthside

Definition of 'Shadow Inventory'

A term that refers to real estate properties that are either in foreclosure and have not yet been sold or homes that owners are delaying putting on the market until prices improve. Shadow inventory can create uncertainty about the best time to sell (for owners) and when a local market can expect full recovery. Also, shadow inventory typically causes reported data on housing inventory to understate the actual number of inventory in the market.

We've been hearing about shadown inventory for a while, none seems to be showing up in Silicon Valley.

In the real estate downturn of the early 1970s...shadow inventory were homes that were being kept OFF the sales market and were being rented rather than marketed for sale...these homes were slowly released BACK into the sales market to stabilize home values
