  We have found, over the past 25 years, that early in the year inventory builds faster compared to at any other time of the year. During the mid to late spring we tend to start seeing a more balanced situation between number of new listings and listings back on the market, versus, sales pending, actual sales, cancellations and expired listings.
Later in the year we tend to see inventory decline a bit  (as well as the number of sales).
On a monthly base you will typically also see that most sales will complete (ownership transfers) at or near the end of the month. These are the typical market movements, but one can never be certain of these trends to occur until one reviews the years events after it has happened....

If you are considering to purchase and or sell a property, the sheer volume of information available can be a bit overwhelming, it is our job to make your real estate plans and dreams become reality, in the process it would be our pleasure to simplify and streamline what can be a very emotional and confusing time in your life.  If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions,  we are here to assist you every step of the way.
