Housing Inventory At 
All-Time Low 
The 1.48m existing homes available for sale on Dec. 31 was 10.3% below the year prior

An uptick in existing-home sales in the final three months of 2017 pulled down housing inventory to an all-time low and kept home-price growth at its recent robust pace, according to the  latest quarterly report  by the National Association of Realtors, issued today.

The national median existing single-family home price in the fourth quarter was $247,800, which is up 5.3% from the fourth quarter of 2016 ($235,400). The median price during last year's third quarter climbed 5.6% from the third quarter of 2016.
