⇑ how to read the “inventory movement” chart

The chart above is called a “walk”:

    • The first box on the left is the inventory we had at the end of the previous month (and thus start of this month)
    • The second box adds the new listings which became active during the month.
    • These first two boxes give us our total home inventory for the month
    • The third box is the number of properties that went under contract, which reduces from our available
    • The fourth box shows homes that were removed from the market without going under contract, which reduces the number
    • Finally we are left with the total inventory at the end of the month
