While competition in housing seems to have cooled earlier this year, trends show that the housing shortage is on the horizon yet again. Supply is soon expected to drop and potentially hit a new low, after increasing in the second half of last year. The number of for-sale listings was up 2.8% annually in June, but that was down from May’s 2.9% gain. Inventory gains began to slow this year from 6.4% growth in January to 5.8% in February. Profits continued to slow throughout the spring and supply is now expected to flatten over the next three months and could hit its first decline in October of this year, according to realtor.com.
