This number is one to keep an eye on. If this uptrend in inventory continues to look for the market to soften and prices do move down which sets up for a buyers market. Inventory levels are trending down which leads to a sellers market causing home values to rise. 


As home inventory levels begin to decrease there is less to chose from. So when you see a home that you like that is properly priced moving quickly is key in getting your offer accepted.


As the number of listings decrease sellers are poised to sell their home faster and for more money. Marketing and making your home look great are keys to selling your home FAST and for MORE MONEY.  

As a seller, your home is one of three listings:

  1. The home that sells!
  2. The home that gets showings but sells the house down the road.
  3. The home that gets no showings and does not sell.

Which type of listing do you want to be?
