“The housing numbers from March paint a slightly different picture from what I’m currently hearing from our members,” said GHAR CEO, Holly Callanan. “An uptick in new listings is a welcome sign and I’m confident the spring market will be a strong one,” she said.

In the national outlook, Lawrence Yun, National Association of REALTORS® chief economist, noted “for sustained growth, significant construction of moderately priced-homes is still needed. More construction will help boost local economies and more home sales will help lessen wealth inequality as more households can enjoy in housing wealth gains."
