We are in a unique time when we have almost the same amount of homes go Under Contract that come on the market each month!  Wow!  But, for the first time in almost a year, the trend line for Inventory is slightly going up instead of down!  I believe we will start to see a trend to a more balanced market, but it will take some time to get there.  Many homes are selling very quickly with multiple offers, while others sit and don’t get many showings or no contracts!  The difference is professional guidance.  Let us be your … (0 comments)
