Small surge of properties made it to market this week, which I'm sure will be well received by shoppers on the market. If you are currently a Buyer in this market, you have probably noticed that the throttle has let off a bit, and you may even find yourself with a few options! Of course, there are still areas of the city that are highly competitive, but there does seem to be a bit of pressure relief at this current junction. Still, lots of buyer activity this week, with 272 listings that received and accepted offers, which is quite above average than last year at this time. It's still pretty early to call, but this years Spring compared to last had its surge a bit earlier than last year, and because of this, we could be seeing a rebound market with a second market push. That, or the weary Buyers of the early Spring inferno market have returned to kinder market conditions to try again. Inventory did take a slight bump this week, which is another good thing for buyers, since more selection usually means less competition and more selection. Normally, the early Summer market is hit or miss, but it is usually the calm before the coming Fall market, so the next few months will lay the groundwork for what is to come. With the numbers being reported, the foot is still on the pedal, but keeping the speed limit. Stay tuned to see how the Summer turns out! Will it be market be like our current weather, or will it turn to the weather we are all hoping for? Thanks for stopping by!
