  • While average sales of attached and detached homes over the last 12 months are slightly lower than a year ago (696 vs 701), shorter term metrics are moving higher (for example, June 2016 sales were 924 units compared to 835 units last year and the June 2016 sales were the highest monthly sale number since April 2014), indicating that homes sales are starting to grow.
  • Inventory of attached and detached homes on July 1st was slightly higher than last year, but the inventory decline that typically happens at this time of the year is happening much quicker than in previous years. With the rapid decline in inventory to 4,239 properties on July 1st (down from a peak of 5,9890 units on March 1st), the months of sales ratio has dropped to 6.1 months
