Houston’s housing market has distinguished itself from other national markets in several ways the past few months; unfortunately, the area’s rapidly declining housing inventory has been one such way.

Though Houston’s inventory in January remained among the largest for metro areas – for instance, it’s 5,285 properties is nearly 14 times that of San Francisco’s paltry 380 – that’s still down 18.5 percent from Jan. 2013, and that comes after the double-digits declines of 2013.
