“A rise in sales, even while inventory is relatively low, is a good sign,” said GHAR CEO, Holly Callanan. “It seems that buyers are finding what they need, creating stability in the market,” she said.

In the national outlook, Lawrence Yun, National Association of REALTORS® chief economist, said he is not overly concerned about the 0.4% dip nationally in sales and expects moderate growth very soon. “First, we are seeing historically low mortgage rates combined with a pent-up demand to buy, so buyers will look to take advantage of these conditions,” he said. “Also, job creation is improving, causing wage growth to align with home price growth, which helps affordability and will help spur more home sales.”
