What Does This Mean?

As a Seller this means that if your property is priced right it will sell, on average, in only 9 days on the market. With inventory this low and demand so high it is common place to see multiple offers on almost every listing that hits the market.

As a Buyer this means that it is more challenging than ever to buy a home.  If you see a property you like there is a 43% chance it will be sold within 1 month.  Making an offer becomes incredibly strategic as you will most likely be in a Multiple Offer scenario.  It is imperative to act fast and have a skillful Realtor working for you.
