Overall the market continues to trend down. However, inventory levels are down by 17% over last October.  Lower levels of inventory can benefit sellers.  Homes were selling on average 10 days faster this year than last year. It is possible that less competition in the marketplace has aided sellers to sell their homes faster.

From a buyer’s point of view, there may not be as many homes to choose from right now but the ones that are available are priced right. Sale prices are down by 6% over last year. It would appear that home owners are listing their homes at market value opposed to over pricing.
