Months of Inventory: 10 Year Trend

As we all know, the Months of Inventory (MOI) for a given real estate market indicates the balance between supply and demand. Higher months of inventory indicate a greater supply than there is a demand. A balanced market will see between 3 and 6 months of inventory for family homes.
