The price of any item is determined by the supply of that item, as well as the market demand. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) surveys “over 50,000 real estate practitioners about theirexpectations for home sales, prices and market conditions” for their Realtors Confidence Index.Their latest edition sheds some light on the relationship between Seller Traffic (supply) and BuyerTraffic (demand). 

    Buyer Demand

 The map on the right was createdafter asking the question:

 “How would you rate buyer trafficin your area?” 

The darker the blue, the morebuyers are looking for homes inthat area. 

Only three states camein with a weak demand level.  



Seller Supply

The Index also asked:

 “How would you rate seller trafficin your area?” 

As you can see from the map onthe left, a good portion of thecountry has weak seller traffic,meaning there are far fewer homeson the market than what is neededto satisfy the buyers who are outlooking for their dream homes.

Bottom Line 

Looking at the maps above, it is not hard to see why prices are appreciating in many areas of thecountry. Until the supply of homes for sale starts to meet the buyer demand, prices will continueto increase.5
