Stats Attached are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of February 2013. This year is continuing at a tepid pace, providing plenty of room to grow! While sales are lagging behind last year, so is the number of new listings coming on market. We saw through February the Sales to New Listings Ratio (absorption rate) improving, brining some markets into a balance state. While good opportunities for buyers still exist, they are dwindling. With new listings coming on at better price points and confidence in the market growing, sales will accelerate.
