Wrap Up:


The good news continues. While it may not be one for the record books, this month was very much on par with the average June, if not slightly above. We continue to be in a strong seller's market, with units sold continuing to be just over the number reported for June 2020. If you're just getting started, speak to one of our knowledgeable agents today to get your home market-ready. Further, with low interest rates and a shortage of inventory, this is your chance to capitalize on a quick sale with a price likely above what you may have anticipated.
