Lisa Wenzel, Designated Managing Real Estate Broker at Wenzel Select Properties was featured with her clients on HGTV’s House Hunters. Season 216, Episode 2, A Hundred Houses and Counting, originally aired on Wednesday, May 18. Additional airings are scheduled throughout the year, so set your DVR.
The episode is about a couple who are ready for an upgrade so they can grow their family in the Chicago suburbs. They’ve seen over a hundred houses with no luck, so one of them may need to adjust their expectations in order to finally get into a new home.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) says that the housing supply is still very low in their latest Existing Home Sales Report. In a normal market, there is typically a 6-month supply of homes available for active buyers. Today, there’s a 2-month supply.

The Housing Market
Today’s housing market is shifting, but we’re still in a sellers’ market. We’re going from a market that’s unlike any we’ve ever seen to one more like pre-pandemic. And the years leading up to the pandemic were some of the best years real estate has seen.
