SNAPSHOT MOVING FORWARD

After the strong and steady housing market throughout 2016, and at times being hugely active, the year came to an end with more typical sales levels as anticipated during this time of year supported with low inventory. Now that the New Year has begun and as we move into the Spring market, any would-be sellers are in a great position to take advantage of well-set pricing and current limited supply.
