The supply of available inventory (the time it would take to sell all of the homes currently on the market) as of the end of October is at 8.6 months, which is up moderately from 7.5 months from this same time last year or (15%). The increase in the number of homes recently listed For Sale indicates that the local market has shifted from a somewhat balanced market to one with an excess of inventory giving the advantage to Buyers for the time being.
Note: A "balanced" market is considered to have a 6 month supply. Anything below that amount would be considered a "low" inventory and thus less than balanced. This market condition typically favors Sellers. Anything above a 6 month supply would result in a "high" inventory of homes on the market and typically favors Buyers.

Prices are expected to remain steady and interest rates continue to remain low. There has rarely been a time where both prices AND interest rates were so low. Combine these two factors with a relatively high inventory of homes to choose from and you have the perfect conditions for a robust and steady housing recovery. The general state of the economy along with a high rate of foreclosures and distressed properties are expected to keep prices low for the forseeable future as this inventory eventually gets cleared out.
