Buyers, this smaller number of active listings may signal that those who waited to buy may have had a smaller selection to choose from. The increase in the number of units sold is a plus for buyers. Higher year over year figures indicate more buyers were able to find what they were looking for compared to the previous year.


Sellers, the decrease in the number of active listings year over year means that there is less competition in the market. This is a great advantage as a seller, you can get top dollar on your home with minimal negotiations.

The average number of days home spent on the market decreased from 57 days last year to 40 days this September. This lower number of days signals a positive trend in the local inventory turnover rate! Sellers are able to sell their home faster than before.
