For Week Ending June 1, 2019

Despite home prices that seem to be creeping ever upward like unchecked crabgrass, pending sales have been performing well, and new listings are generally keeping up with demand in a manner that is propelling the housing industry forward into weed-free pastures. The Federal Reserve considers 2.0% a healthy inflation rate, but the U.S. is expected to remain below that in 2019, which could prompt as many as three rate cuts this year. In turn, that could boost housing further. Excelsior!

• New Listings decreased 2.4% to 1,907
• Pending Sales decreased 10.1% to 1,328
