Paul Martin, a Realtor with US Preferred Realty in Mesa, emailed me saying he believed the slight fall in inventory was due to high levels of expired and canceled listings and not due to increased sales. That is, that the fall in inventory was due to frustrated sellers who have given up on selling their homes.
My point wasn’t that sales increased but that new listings decreased.

Which is it? Frustrated sellers or fewer new listings?
