Looks like the hits keep on coming! Huge amount of new listings this week and with not a whole lot of sales happening the inventory numbers are climbing at an accelerated rate. The rest of the stats remain relatively normal. Condo and single family home values remain strong, days on market are average and the pile (expired, cancelled, withdrawn listings) are in usual parameter. We did have some "out of the ordinary" activity this week again with the sales dip. Another poor sales week vs big inventory addition equals a very low sales to list ratio, an absorption rate that not only doubled itself from last week, but the highest I have reported that stat since I began recording it last year. Hopefully the nice weather will start bringing buyers out of hiding, and with posting season around the corner we should see positive traffic increase. Thanks for stopping by!
