Distressed        inventory   Down 56% from October 2015.  
Resale inventory   Down 14% from September.

Months of supply   Wake has had five consecutive months of a lower number of new listings, in spite of increased demand.  This is reflected in shorter DOM and higher prices.
Comments   Real estate is cyclical and affected by interest rates and we are in year 35 of a downward trend.  Statistically, we are due for interest rates to rise, which will impact buyers' ability to purchase, especially first-time buyers.

Hi Dianne

Buyers and sellers can readily see you know the housing market in Wake County and can help them understand what all this means for their buying or selling decision-making. Will be interesting to see what happens in November, and then December.
