March pending home sales reported weaker than expected at +1.9% vs +4.4% consensus. Prior month was revised down to -11.5%. All regions except Midwest saw gains. Inventory remains a problem.

"Low inventory has been a consistent problem, but more inventory will show up as new home construction intensifies in the coming months, as well as from a steady wind-down of the mortgage forbearance program," said Lawrence Yun, NAR's chief economist.
