The number of homes for sale is finally beginning to rise, which is good for buyers, who have been experiencing a bit of a shortage thus far this year. The for-sale inventory grew by 4.1% in April, up 1.75 million units according to Realtor.com. Additionally the average list price was up 2.6% in April-good news for sellers-and the pricing recovery was widespread through most markets. This would indicate a higher demand for moderate to higher priced homes. Industry experts are predicting that this trend will continue into the fall. And finally, houses are spending less time on the market once listed, having fallen by 11% year-over-year in April. For more on this visit MSN Real Estate.
