Chart of the Week: Housing Inventory

The NYT reported yesterday that "the number of homes
for sale on Long Island and in Queens in June was 22 percent higher this year
compared with the same time last year, signaling, some say, that prices have
been raised too high for many buyers.”

“The numbers come from the Multiple Listing Service of Long
Island, a network of about 2,300 real estate offices in Long Island and
Queens.” They also report “median home sale prices are still rising in Nassau
and Suffolk, but at a slower rate."
