For Week Ending May 6, 2017

As we get closer to summer, more houses are put up for sale, as tends to happen around this time each year. Yet it’s not as many homes for sale as 2016, and last year did not have as much available to buy as in 2015. The downward trend continues, which can have an affect on total sales. Homes listed when move-in ready and priced well are being snapped up quickly. In fact, despite lower inventory, many REALTORS┬« report that they are busier than last year and closing plenty of sales.
