By Inman News
Editor’s note: These numbers come from Realtor.com’s July 2012 Real Estate Trend Data Report. The report covers 146 U.S. metros and includes single-family homes, condos, townhomes and co-ops.
The number of for-sale real estate listings continued to drop on an annual basis in July, falling 19.3 percent from July 2011 to a total of 1.87 million listings nationwide, according to Realtor.com data through July 2012. This trend, along with a 2.6 percent year-over-year median list price increase last month to $194,900, points to some stability in the nascent housing recovery that’s slowly settled in this year….
