The results from the first half of the year are exciting. Sales and new listings are up, along with the average price of homes. Homes are selling for record high price points across the region. The number of homes coming on the market reached a peak in May, while demand for homes continues to rise month after month. If this trend continues, we expect an aggressive autumn market. Premium move-in ready homes are attracting the most attention. Local homeowners should be pleased with stable rising prices. We predict these conditions will continue through the remainder of the summer.
