Well, that's two weeks in a row! Even though the inventory gain was very marginal, it still fell into the increasing trend, which is the way the market usually goes around this time of year. New listing additions weren't a huge influence this week, although they helped, and sales reported higher than average, so you have to wonder where the numbers are coming from. Vacant lot inventory increased this week, so too did single family homes, but Condo inventory decreased significantly, so you would think that with the amount of sales and fewer new additions that inventory would have balanced out, I guess we came pretty close. The above average sales activity looks as though it will continue into next week, at the least, as the listings that reported conditional pending stayed above the norm again this week. So it looks like it's "business as usual" again, where "usual" means increased sales, lack of inventory, less time on market for sellers, and lots of buyer activity. I, for one, welcome this new market, and I hope it sticks around for the foreseeable future! Thanks for stopping by, and be sire to check in to stay on top of the market!
