We are showing a slight increase in inventory this month which is not really an indication because the increase is not considerable.  However, if inventory continues to increase, it will be a sure sign that we have finally transitioned into a buyer's market.

It is not a buyer's market yet thought, so don't get confused.  Prices are still increasing and demand still is stronger than supply.  We are in that very strange in-between, transitioning market that can benefit both buyers and sellers because neither has the upper hand.  The only time this changes is with luxury properties and completely remodeled homes - when the product is top notch (location and condition), then sellers will still have the upper hand.

This may be good information for you since small projects to update your home, may not only make the property more marketable, but will ultimately help you get a better return.  Contact us to find out what updates are worth it and which you shouldn't even consider.
