The Keystone Point real estate market is officially in transition.  It's strange to buy and sell in a transitional market because it's not yet a buyer's market nor a seller's market.  The comfort is that neither party to the transaction has more power so both tend to cooperate equally.

Prices are remaining steady and so is inventory in Keystone Point.  The luxury market remains unchanged because those homes tend to be larger, bay-front properties that require a distinct type of buyer that recognizes the value of the location.

Remember that houses are taking a bit longer to sell, if you are a seller that wants a quick transaction, you will need to drop the price.
