The season of backyard grilling, outdoor festivals and extended family vacations is upon us. Those who are already safely tucked in an owned home are not likely thinking much about the housing market, but those who are fixing to buy or sell are living it daily. Not enough inventory or not enough money offered for purchase? Too high a price or multiple offers on the table? The answers are ever evolving and dependent upon location and situation. A new quarter of activity is almost in the books, but year-over-year comparisons on monthly and weekly activity may be more beneficial for those living the housing life.
