Current Home Availability: Navigating Today's Real Estate Market

Navigating the housing market requires the latest insights, especially when considering a move. Here's a current snapshot of the home supply landscape, crucial for both buyers and sellers in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Unraveling the Realities of Today's Housing Inventory

The narrative in recent years has centered around a scarce housing market. However, recent data presents a slightly different picture. According to, we're witnessing a gradual increase in home listings in many regions (refer to the blue states in the accompanying map). Nationally, there's been a modest 5% uptick in housing supply last month.

Is the Era of Limited Inventory Ending?

One might ponder if the days of restricted housing supply are receding. It's essential to understand the broader context. While inventory levels show an increase, they remain significantly lower compared to a typical market scenario.

Comparing the latest active listing counts to the pre-pandemic period (2017-2019), we observe a stark contrast, as Lance Lambert of ResiClub Analytics points out: "Housing market inventory is so far below pre-pandemic levels that October's big jump is still just a drop in the bucket."

Implications for Buyers and Sellers

For buyers in our local market, this translates to a slight expansion in choices, yet the landscape is still characterized by low inventory. Working with a knowledgeable agent is vital for navigating these conditions effectively.

Sellers, on the other hand, can be reassured that the market remains favorable. Despite the national increase in listings, the overall inventory is still constrained, potentially leading to competitive offers and quick sales, particularly in specific locales.
