Spec Scripts that Hit in July 2021
0

Between July 1st and July 31st, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs out. This is a decline from the specs out the previous month, but it was to be expected with many taking long-awaited vacations, coupled with the bottlenecking we’re seeing in the development chain. However, it’s not the drop-off we anticipated and is still on par with the past month’s numbers.

Between June 1st and June 30th, we tracked a total of 22 feature specs out. We’ve been coming from a steadily declining slump of material out, but June turned it around from May’s slow market. While not the highest number of features out this year, things are starting to mend.

Between May 1st and May 31st, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs out. We’ve seen a progressively steady decline of specs hitting the market since re-openings have started to rise. May marks the second lost number out, next to January. The more shocking number is that of the 19 feature specs out, only 2 have some type of attachment, with one additional spec from a past month selling in May.

Between April 1st and April 30th, we tracked a total of 22 feature specs out. While it’s a positive from last April, it’s continuing our steady decline of specs from the past couple of months. We’ve seen a 12% decrease in specs from March’s count. We’ve continued to decrease in specs since February, wherein in a traditional market, we’d see increases in April, a hot month for the material.
