By November 6, 2018No Comments

In October, there was a 7.8% increase in home sales compared to October in 2017.

 

“It was a stronger than average October for home sales and listing activity. Gradually increasing interest rates could be nudging both buyers and sellers from the sidelines of the housing market.”

Tony Schmidt, President of KWAR

Market recap from Tony Schmidt, President of KWAR:

“Not surprisingly we’re seeing the biggest surges in average price happening in the denser forms of housing such as condos.”
