Realtor.com released its monthly housing report that shows the red hot housing market stayed the course in February (Realtor.com)

–  The median national home listing price was $353,000 in February.  The 13.7% appreciation was actually down from the 15.4% we saw in January.

– The inventory of homes for sale decreased by 48.6% compared to the same time last year.  This was actually a higher rate of decline compared to January when the inventory fell 42.6%.
