Summertime proves to be a busy time in the real estate market. The Westfield Area Market Report for July 2018 showed that to be true. Buyers love newly constructed homes, with several properties spending less than 30 days on the market before going under contract. Inventory's up 39%. But that hasn't quelled buyer demand.
