Current Market

  • 126 Active Residential Properties
  • 160 Contingent Residential Properties
  • 4.4 Months Inventory = BALANCED MARKET!


  • The market is FINALLY balancing
  • I think the decrease in value is deceiving
  • The higher range market is slowing more than the mid-lower range

Further Thoughts

I was tickled pink to see that we finally have inventory more typical for our market this month! That being said, in general there is far more demand for homes under $350,000 or so than supply, so those are still seeing multiple offers and very quick turnaround times. From my observation, the effects of the higher mortgage rates is hitting the higher priced homes more. My theory is it’s more likely that sector is in the ‘it would be nice to move’ mindset as opposed to a ‘we need to move’ one, so they’re more motivated to hold off. As for the decrease in units sold, it could be a ripple effect of the same scenario. But, time will tell as we move into the robust spring market that has started with a flurry of activity…
