Buyers, this decrease in the number of active listings indicates a smaller selection of homes for you to choose from than the year before. The decrease in the number of units sold indicates a greater opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms during the buying process. 

Sellers, the decrease in the number of active listings means there is less competition in the market. The average number of days spent on the market decreased 40% from the previous year, signaling a positive trend in the local inventory turnover rate. Sellers are able to sell their homes faster than before.
