Supply and demand for nationwide sales listings seem to be moving upward together which could mean a flattening of prices in the near future.


Turning to leasing, new rental listings decreased nationwide for the nineteenth consecutive month, totaling 245,203 listings (a 2.9% decrease YoY).


Total registered rental listings nationwide amounted to 506,909 (an 8.5% decrease), marking the thirteenth consecutive month of decline.


Reported rental transactions increased for the fifth consecutive month, with 31,894 cases (a 6.3% increase YoY).


The decrease in supply plus increase in reported transactions indicate there may be higher demand than supply, which could be a catalyst for higher rents in the future.
