We are seeing a lower inventory, more offers coming in at once, more sales, etc. The information in the article come from our MLS database, which is the most accurate source you'll find for homes listed and/or sold by Real Estate agents.
I am curious where you found the chart you are referring to in your post. Please pass on the link and we might be able to further explain why that information is incorrect. I can even send you a list of all the houses that have sold in any given month, subdivision, etc. The clerk of court might be able to give you some numbers too as every sale is recorded.
Feel free to respond with any further questions. Thanks for asking so we have the opportunity to get the right numbers out there!
Homes are moving but buyers are picky and there is less inventory by far right now than there was this time last year. If your home is clean, priced according to what the market will bear, and in move in condition, it will sell if it's marketed. We have had four go under contract in the last three weeks.
