There is seldom a lot of inventory in Piedmont....the high point this past year was in March with 25 homes.
The agents that are telling you there are "homes coming on the market after the holiday" may not be familar with Piedmont. Average time on the market is 30 days (up from 17 days in Oct!) and median prices are up dramatically year to date.
Piedmont is hot and inventory moves quickly. Good luck!
A local Realtor can get you signed up on a listing watch so you are immediately notified when a new property hits the market. Good luck.

I don't live in your area - but I would contact my agent. They usually have data bases full of homeowners that withdrew their listing, or the listing simply expired.
If those home owners knew that there was an interested enough party, at the right asking price - they just might re-list their home.
This is yet another valuable service your agent can perform for you with little effort on your part. Give it a try and let us know how it goes. I'll be rooting for you on the sidelines!
Yes, the inventory is a little low right now in Piedmont. However, homes should begin to come on after the Labor Day Holiday. Many families wait to put there homes on after evryone returns to school. If you have interest in keeping up with what is coming soon you can go to our web site and contact me with any questions. Good Luck!
