For Week Ending June 25, 2016

As we know, declining inventory has been the central focus of real estate news throughout the first half of the year. The lack of options of homes for sale seems to be keeping many from selling and instead, staying and renovating. This, in turn, leads to a lack of starter homes for first-time buyers. Sales are still climbing ever upward, and low mortgage rates continue to aid affordability.

  • New Listings increased 2.2% to 1,907
