Wrap Up:

Sellers: While not the most remarkable month in terms of sales, May slowly but surely continued the trend we saw starting in April. While we unfortunately saw a slight decrease in the sell/inventory ratio over last month, the number of days it takes to sell a property has also continued to lower. As a seller on the market today, these numbers further indicate a market that is slowly, but surely leveling back out. If you are considering listing your home, the early summer is an optimal time to enter the market. Talk to your agent today!

Buyers: As we are now in the midst of the peak season in real estate, the number of homes on the market continues to rise, with more inventory every month. However, don’t delay if you’ve found a promising home, especially with these low interest rates.   If you’re in the beginning stages of the home buying purchase, now is the time to find an agent who understands your needs!
