How’s the market? Number crunching tells the story

October 28th, 2019

My July e-news noted two ways of gauging real estate activity: Days on market, and the sales to listing ratio. Today we'll delve into months of inventory (MOI). This is simply the number of active listings in a particular market, or preferably a precise sub-market, on a given day divided by the number of sales in that market/sub-market the previous month.

For example, on Oct 21, 582 detached ...

While many sellers and buyers continue to take are a "wait and see" attitude, others are proactively choosing to go ahead and list and sell their homes now, or continue their home search.

JUST SOLD! With multiple offers, and for over asking!

September 20th, 2019
