Rising home listings won’t derail our price forecast

We think that reports of a wave of new resale supply coming onto the market are overblown. While the number of homes being listed for sale has increased compared to last year, it is still low by historical standards, as mortgage rate ‘lock-in’ continues to curb the number of homes put up for sale. That supports our upbeat call on house prices this year.
