June is typically the mop-up month for our spring home sale season on the Eastern Shore of Mobile, Ala., metro area. And there’s usually a lull in July as the market takes a breather.
There some evidence of those market rhythms in this month’s numbers, but there is welcomed strength in the stats too.
Headed into July, inventory remains virtually unchanged compared with June with 816 homes for sale in Spanish Fort, Daphne and Fairhope. Sales dropped from 159 in May to 125 in June. Pending sales were off, but not precipitously, dropping from 231 the first of June to 207 the first of July.
