US Existing Home Sales Median Price Slows To 17.8% YoY In July On Continued Low Inventory For Sale (EHS Increased To 5.99M SAAR)

Feeling hot, hot, hot. Housing, that is!

US existing home sales in July rose to 5.99 million SAAR, beating expectations. But the inventory of home available for sale remains low by historic standards.

The median price of existing homes declined to 17.8% YoY with The Federal Reserve pumping money into the system like there is no tomorrow.

Bloomberg had the following headline: “Sales of Existing Homes in U.S. Rise as Inventory Picks Up.” While that is a true statement, existing home sales inventory is still down 12% YoY.

I wonder if the attendees at the Jackson Hole Fed conference will be discussing the gut-wrenching home price growth? Rumor has it that Fed Chair Powell will use J-Hole as a platform to suggest paring back on the monetary stimulus.
