Existing home sales fall for sixth month as supply crunch worsens

The sale of previously owned homes fell again in September as high mortgage rates and a worsening supply shortage left would-be buyers with few options.

U.S. existing home sales continued to slide in September as a combination of steep mortgage rates and a worsening supply shortage squeezed would-be homebuyers. 

Sales of previously owned homes fell 2% in September from the previous month to an annual rate of 3.96 million units, according to new data released Thursday by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). On an annual basis, existing home sales are down 15.4% when compared with September 2022. 

"As has been the case throughout this year, limited inventory and low housing affordability continue to hamper home sales," said Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR. "The Federal Reserve simply cannot keep raising interest rates in light of softening inflation and weakening job gains."


There were about 1.13 million homes for sale at the end of September, according to the report, up 2.7% from the previous month but down 8.1% from the same time one year ago.
