Parma does have quite a bit of inventory every year. It usually hits its low point in January or February of every year. The fact that there are over 650 homes for sale this fall is not that unusual, what is unusual is that over the summer months the number of homes sold did not spike significantly with the new homes coming on the market. Inventory peaks in May historically, as do sales...usually. As a buyer, this means that there are quite a few homes on the market that are under-valued. As a seller, pricing and patience become even more important. Good homes are selling, while marginal homes, unless aggressively priced, continue to languish on the market. I do the bulk of my business in Parma, and I truly think that sales will continue to be steady through the fall. Good evidence of this is the fact that over 120 properties are either contingent or pending at this time.
