Most notably, the number of days it took for properties to go to contract and close rose by double digits. If you’re a seller and you have your home price appropriately it could take up to almost 3 months to sell your condo. Since our main selling season is getting closer to the end, if you haven’t done so already, you need to discuss your pricing with your realtor to ensure you are priced right. If you are a buyer, with the increased inventory you should expect to see more options and at a better price.
