The shortage of listings has put upward pressure on prices.  The median selling price for single-family homes increased on an annual basis by 7.9 percent, from $407,450 in February 2014 to $439,500 this February, a new record high price for the month.  The median selling price for condominiums also hit a new record high for the month of February, rising 3.5 percent over the past year from $390,000 last February to $403,568 in February 2015.  Notably, the median selling price for single-family homes has now risen in 28 of the past 29 months, and improved in 23 of the last 24 months for condos.

    U.S. home resales rebounded modestly in February against the backdrop of a persistent shortage of properties on the market, a trend that could undermine the spring selling season. Sluggish home sales are another sign that economic activity slowed sharply in the first quarter, which could further diminish expectations that the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates in June. The Fed singled out housing as a sector that remains slow, and it still is, but that doesn't mean the Fed shouldn't hike rates," said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisors in Holland, Pennsylvania. The National Association of Realtors said on Monday that existing home sales rose 1.2 percent to an annual rate of 4.88 million units, failing to reverse January's 4.9 percent plunge.
