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 the 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 our availability.
  • 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.
The chart above is a bar chart showing the number of homes sold in the month by price bucket. Blue is the number of detached, single-family homes; while pink is the number of attached, multi-family homes. Charts like this are helpful as they easily show where we see the most activity.
