Bit of lazy Summer activty this week, all market numbers seem to be dragging in relatively normal fashion, which is anything but normal in this market. New listings were minimal, sales sub 200 (surprisingly low), a dismal amount of listings that received and accepted offers (also sub 200 for the first time in awhile), and six month median prices that pretty much froze this week, makes one wonder if the tide has finally started to turn or that annual trend is finally starting to get back on track. As mentioned in the last few "post lockdown" reports, the market just didn't feel the same, and the prediction of the continued push of the sellers market just hasn't happened since the return. If anything, each week shows more and more signs that we may have reached the peak, but again, the season is notoriously slow most years, so it's hard to say which is the greater influence. So what does that mean if the turn of the market has happened? Well, we are already starting to see signs that adjustments are being made to sale prices, when listings don't actually receive any offers over the offer however window, something that has not happened very often since the pandemic market took hold. People are starting to see some listings sell for asking price, or even under in some rare cases, but the fact is that these situations are starting to increase and become noticed by industry members, buyers and sellers alike. Still lots of life left in the market yet, especially for some products and certain areas, but there is no denying that it's not the same market as it was a couple months ago. Keep a close eye on the developing market as things happen by tuning into the blog! Thanks for stopping by, and stay safe out there!

Niko loves people (and kids - according to owner). Niko has chronic ear infections and is allergic to chicken. Niko loves attention and cuddles, loves to sleep on pillows and blankets, friendly with everyone that comes into the house and in public. Niko howls and bounces on his front paws when he wants attention lol and loves to sun bathe. Niko requires obedience training as he jumps, pulls on leash, and plays keep away if off-leash. Niko likes pretty much any food or treat he can get his mouth on. Niko is house trained and crate trained, has been around dogs, cats, chickens and geese! No fears or bite history noted.
