The Absorption Rate (if home sales continued at the present rate, the number of months it would take to consume the current listing inventory) continues to drop.  Unit sales are strong, so demand is slowly outpacing inventory.  Prices are beginning to show signs of stabilizing.  The price per square foot has been increasing since March.

 

For buyers - this may be the bottom of the market. Don't believe what the media is selling.  Both price per square foot and average price have been increasing since March.

For sellers - preparing your home for sale is the key to getting the best price.
