If it seems like the sales to list ratio has been unusually high lately, it's because it has been! For the third week in a row we are well above the average StL report, and well above the 50% mark, which is also really high for this time of year. The general feeling out there is that there's still a bulge of buyers hunting the market, and with lack of product availability (in certain areas and type), the few listings that do come to market get snapped up. The absorption is in alignment with this time last year, and the inventory overall has taken another step towards closing the gap as well, however, buyer interest is still at an all time high and seemingly more active. Ultimately, things are bound to cool off, even for a short time over the holiday's, and it will be interesting to see what 2019 has in store for our fair city. Stay tuned to the blog to stay on top of it all! Thanks for stopping by!
