Market recap from Tony Schmidt, President of KWAR:
“Looking closer at how the forces of supply and demand were at work last month, it becomes really clear that the question of it being a buyer’s or seller’s market really depends on which price range you’re in, last month 71 per cent of all residential sales were for less than half a million dollars, but the number of homes listed in that price range on our MLS® System right now is a little less than half of all the inventory.”
The average time it took to sell a home in April was 21 days, compared to 11 days in April 2017.
