Residential sales levels are constrained by a lack of new inventory. Home sales have been volatile on a month-to-month basis, but on average they’re almost exactly where they were last year: at an annual sales pace of about 5.2 million units.   Notwithstanding the ups and downs of the transaction pace, there appears to be a steady stream of buyers in the market, so we can expect sales to hold steady this year and settle at a pace close to where they were at the end of 2015.
