Prices remainsimilar to last year, but ease in October

October's housing market conditions closelyechoed previous month's trends with easing sales, rising inventories anddownward price pressure. Like last month, the monthly activity was not enoughto derail gains that occurred earlier in the year.

October sales and inventories totaled 1,467 and6,463 units for a month of supply of 4.4. Several months of elevated supply incomparison to demand has weighed on pricing over the past several months. Thecity-wide unadjusted benchmark price in October totaled $438,900, 0.6 per centbelow last month, but comparable to last year.
