Dwelling Decline

April existing-home sales fell 2.7% M-o-M, to 5.85 million/year, the best April sales rate since 2006. That said, it was the third straight monthly decline. While low rates and remote working still boost demand, a lack of homes, especially at lower price points, vertiginous Y-o-Y price appreciation of 13% to 19% depending on how you measure, and no new meaningful growth in home construction activity are quietly taking their toll.
