As we enter the final weeks of the year, the pace of activity is starting to slow down. This is to be expected, since December and January are perennially two of the slower months in the real estate year. Last week, “2” seemed to be the magic number — two new listings, two pending sales, and two closed escrows.
I would expect more of the same this week as we start the final “full” week of 2014. Most people who are considering selling their homes will likely wait until after the first of the year to avoid competing with the holiday season. This is a big reason why our inventory is where it’s at — a combined total of 5 homes, townhomes, and condos available in the entire city! I can’t remember a time when inventory was that low.
But rest assured, that will change in the new year…
Here are the details from last week:
