Realtor.com has monthly and weekly data on the existing home market. Here is their weekly report released today from Chief Economist Danielle Hale: Weekly Housing Trends View — Data Week Ending Oct 29, 2022. Note: They have data on list prices, new listings and more, but this focus is on inventory.

o Active inventory continued to grow, increasing 40% above one year ago. This is the third week of a more notable step up in inventory gains after rough stability since July….o New listings-a measure of sellers putting homes up for sale-were again down, dropping 13% from one year ago. This marks the seventeenth week of year over year declines in the number of new listings coming up for sale.

Here is a graph of the year-over-year change in inventory according to realtor.com.

Note the rapid increase in the YoY change earlier this year, from down 30% at the beginning of the year, to up 29% YoY at the beginning of July.

Then the Realtor.com data was stuck at up around 26% to 30% YoY for 14 weeks in a row. This was due to the slowdown in new listings, even as sales had fallen sharply.
Now YoY inventory is increasing again with even higher mortgage rates, suggesting sales are off more than new listings.
