Not the hot Spring start that we were hoping (both market and weather wise), but it is here, and it will improve! (hopefully sooner than later) Speaking of, things that did improve this week; sales to list ratio, property under contract (pending sales), days on market for both products. Things that look better than last year at this time; sales to list ratio, overall inventory, new listing additions (not sure if less is better, but its keeping the inventory low). The other stats are reporting pretty much on par with the last years stats at this time, which was a vast improvement from the year prior (2015). Since last year however, there has been a strange occurrence. Product availability and addition has been kept to a minimum. Late last year I had many clients lament how there was a decent amount of products on the market, but not as much selection as they had hoped. It seems that trend has carried into the new year, and I'm curious if there is a looming "listing explosion" about to erupt from the pent up vacancy. Time will tell! Make sure to keep tabs on the market by checking in! Thanks for stopping by!
