Sales again moved downward last month, joining inventory’s long slide, while prices were mixed. One month’s result doesn’t establish a trend, and it’s hard to separate the effects of the pandemic from what would be normal seasonal effects. The next few months will no doubt be difficult ones for both buyers and sellers, complicated by low inventory, economic uncertainty, and pandemic restrictions, but we’re hesitant to make predictions beyond that, with so many unknown factors coming into play. We’re likely to continue reporting market facts more than market insights over the next several months as conditions change and we figure out how long-term effects will affect consumer behavior. We’ll keep you updated as things progress.
