Market Conditions

New Listings are down 3.4% and under contracts are down 46%. Months supply of inventory is at 5 (if no new listings come on the market, in 5 months, inventory would be at zero). Numbers under 6 indicate we are still in a seller’s market, yet the “frenzy” of our market is slowing down. Buyers have more choices, and multiple offers situations have become less common.
