Over the last year or more in the real estate market, we have seen some pretty incredible things. Housing prices have gone up, inventory has been low creating bidding wars on properties, to mortgage rates hitting all-time lows. All of these factors have created an incredible seller's market.
As we look at the market today, the data is indicating that some of those trends we have experienced are starting to change. Although it is still a seller's market, things are beginning to soften up. This article from RedFin looks at the data over the last year and does a great job of showing how things are trending. Enjoy the article and give me a call with any of your real estate needs.

This may be a reflection of the fact that there was a small increase in the number of homes available to tour.
