The extraordinary lack of homes for sale continues to drive a hot – hot real estate market! Sellers were in no hurry to cash in in June. Instead they’re sitting tight and watching their equity grow. Meanwhile, buyers are fiercely competing for the few homes on the market each week.
We expect this condition to continue until there is some major financial shock, as employment is so strong in our area. Supply and demand is always what it comes down to. Companies are hiring. Office space is being built at a tremendous pace, but very few new homes are being built in this area.
