Inventory of homes for sale decreased all 3 years.  Closed homes went up all 3 years and so did prices because of the decrease in inventory.  This give you a good look at why prices are rising.  There are not enough homes built to satisfy the demand.  This is not just locally.  It is nation wide.  More homes need to be built or commercial property that is vacant needs to be modified to accommodate housing needs.
