This graph shows existing home sales, on a Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate (SAAR) basis since 1993.

Sales in June (5.86 million SAAR) were up 1.4% from last month, and were 22.9% above the June 2020 sales rate.

The second graph shows nationwide inventory for existing homes.

NAR: Existing-Home Sales Increased to 5.86 million in JuneAccording to the NAR, inventory increased to 1.25 million in June from 1.21 million in May.

Headline inventory is not seasonally adjusted, and inventory usually decreases to the seasonal lows in December and January, and peaks in mid-to-late summer.

The last graph shows the year-over-year (YoY) change in reported existing home inventory and months-of-supply. Since inventory is not seasonally adjusted, it really helps to look at the YoY change. Note: Months-of-supply is based on the seasonally adjusted sales and not seasonally adjusted inventory.

NAR: Existing-Home Sales Increased to 5.86 million in June Inventory was down 18.8% year-over-year in June compared to June 2020.

Months of supply increased to 2.6 months in June from 2.5 months in May.

This was slightly below the consensus forecast. I'll have more later.
