As an indication of how far demand has collapsed in the last few months, the number of pending listings of all areas & types in the ARMLS database is 6,873. This is the second lowest number we have ever recorded for mid-June, beaten only by June 15, 2007. June is usually a strong month and we would normally expect counts to fall from June through the rest of the year.
We have been saying for several years that the imbalance in the market was caused by very low supply, not unusually high demand. This is illustrated by the fact that a sudden increase in mortgage interest rates can drop the demand to almost record lows.
