After three consecutive years of overall recording breaking sales, a pullback was not to be unexpected. A lot of the decrease has to do with the drop in inventory. Things are fairly slim in the market, especially on the lower end. It is also helping to push prices higher. Not dramatically, but enough that it is beginning to make a difference.
