May was a month of dead-even balance, measured by the rate of new listings hitting the market and the number finding buyers.
MBC recorded 26
new listings and 26
sales (new escrows), making May the hottest month recently – March had 24 sales and April had 19, by our count. A few of those May sales were, once again, on listings that had just hit the market. What a Spring it's been.

Total inventory was down by 5 listings from the end of April, at 79
SFRs west of Sepulveda – same as in mid-May.
For what it's worth, June has begun with a little rush of new inventory and not quite as many sales, but let's see how that pans out by mid-month.
The spreadsheets and writeup here cover the 2-week period from May 15-May 31.
