Lawrence Yun, NAR’s Chief Economist explained:
"After some volatility this winter, the latest data is encouraging in that a
decent number of buyers signed contracts last month, lured by mortgage
rates dipping to their lowest levels in nearly a year and a modest, seasonal
uptick in inventory." "Looking ahead, the key for sustained momentum and

replacing what's being scooped up by a growing pool of buyers. Without
adequate supply, sales will likely plateau."
