The most important points of today's market seem to reflect more of the same, but then some new items:
- Inventory is down from this time last year, but increased by 400 homes compared to last month
- Prices have increased steadily the past few months
- Listing and sales of traditional homes have increased (this is the best news! - I think we were all getting sick and tired of all the short sales).
