Why the spike? In March, there were 24.2% more home closings than in February, and the bulk of the homes closing in March would have first gone under contract in February - new listings in February only rose 11.0% compared to January.

The result? Competing buyers, and this figure helps illustrate it: the average sale to list price in March was 102.4% of list price, compared to 101.0% of list price in February and 100.0% in January.
