Opportunity awaits - End of Month

Sales and listings statistics are out for September. While the numbers show a September not to remember – perspective is the key. Over the last 25 years, September has more often than not shown lower units sold than August. September is a transition month, as much in life as in real estate. Activity in the real estate market did increase week by week as we moved through September. Over 1000 listings came off the market as October 1st appeared, with many more inactive listings on the market – buyers are engaging those listings coming on that are priced sharply leaving a bulk of listings sitting quiet. Benchmark prices in all areas have seen declines since their peak this year showing that Sellers will have to be reactive in their pricing going forward. And Buyers have their opportunity!
