I do believe that was it! The Spring surge has finally wained, and we are on to the Summer plunge market. Inventory across the board took a nosedive, but there are a couple factors that helped that happen this week. Firstly, it was the beginning/end month expiry/renewal churn, contract expiries, and the Canada Day long weekend. Canada Day does seem to be the unofficial marker for the inventory deflation, but this market has been anything predictable, so it's almost nice to see something fall back into line. Sales were down a bit this week as well, but the long weekend must have certainly played a roll, as do most holidays. Even buyer activity reported lower than the recent norm, but again, refer to the factors above. I guess the big question at this point is "where do we go from here"? Are we destined to slip back into the comfortable slow gain market like a well worn pair of slippers, or will we continue to forge ahead and embrace the change. Likely, this year will be the year we see things return to the former, but you never know! What I do know is that if it keeps on the way it has, Buyers will be in for a rough ride until it wains. Until then, we ride it out until we stabilize! Thanks for stopping by!
