Columbia, MD is closing out the 2016 on a stable note. Most of these figures show a slower market, but not a bad one. December, when Christmas and New Years are just around the corner these numbers are not surprising. From the Sales prices, days on the market, to the inventory, this months outlook seems stable, witha  few bumps that are not expected to last into spring.  Lets take a look at the 2 major indicators that help us determine overall Real Estate health within Columbia, MD!
